MSV 24: Quartiles for a Small Data Set

Tackling this topic is often a rather unsatisfactory affair.

There are different rules for finding the quartiles according to which text you read.

The rules used here are those suggested by MEI, which seem most sensible to me.

By the end of this exercise, students will hopefully have the idea that small data sets and the analysis of quartiles don't really mix!
