Dotplots, as mentined in the Acorn book, are simply plots that indicate
the positions of univariate data points on a real number line. They are the
same as the number line plots of the the QLS book on Exploring Data
and the same as the Minitab dotplot. These are simple to construct, for
small data sets, but the other plots mentioned there (stemplot and histogram)
are far more widely used.
