First of all, do you know what median means?

The median is that point in a distribution where half the scores have a higher value and half have a lower value. It is also known as the 50th percentile or the second quartile.
I searched Google under the key words "box whisker plot" to get these possible sources:

In the future, you can find the information you desire more quickly, if you use appropriate key words to do your own search. Also see http://hanlib.sou.edu/searchtools/.
I hope this helps a little more. Thanks for asking.
