## Stem and Leaf Plots

A Stem and Leaf Plot is a special table in which each data value is divided into a “stem” (usually the first digit or digits) and a “leaf” (usually the last digit). Explain what the stem and leaf mean (Stem “2” Leaf “3” means 2.3).

## How do you make a stem and leaf plot?

What is a Stem-and-Leaf Plot?

- The game stats: Step 1: Determine the smallest and largest number in the data.
- Step 2: Identify the stems.
- Step 3: Draw a vertical line and list the stem numbers to the left of the line.
- Step 4: Fill in the leaves.

## What is the key in a stem and leaf plot?

The Stem and Leaf Plot is a fun way to display data. When reading a stem and leaf plot, start with the key because it will show you how to read the other values. The key on this plot shows that the stem represents the tens place and the leaf represents the ones place.

## Do you put a 0 in a stem-and-leaf plot?

The stem is the digit, or digits, in the number that remain when the leaf is dropped, and the leaf is the digit in the place farthest to the right in the number. To show a one-digit number (such as 9) using a stem-and-leaf plot, use a stem of 0 and a leaf of 9.

## Can you make stem-and-leaf plot excel?

To make a stem-and-leaf plot in Excel, follow these steps: Step 1: Enter the data. Step 2: Determine the minimum and maximum values. Step 3: Manually enter the “stems” based on the minimum and maximum values.

## How do you interpret stem and leaf plots?

The “stem” values are listed first, followed by the “leaf” values, which go right (or left) from the stem values; the “stem” groups the scores, while each “leaf” shows the individual scores within each group.

## How do you know if a stem and leaf plot is skewed?

Skewed: Similar to a histogram’s horizontal skewing, stem plots with an obvious skew toward one end or the other tend to indicate a higher number of outliers, either less than the mode (skewed down u2013 correlating to a left-skew in a histogram) or greater than the mode (skewed up u2013 correlating to a right-skew in a histogram).

## What place value is listed on the leaf side of a stem-and-leaf plot?

A stem-and-leaf plot is one way to make data more usable. The stems are the digits in the data’s greatest place value(s), while the leaves are the digits in the next greatest place value(s). For example, if all the data are two-digit numbers, the number in the tens place would be used for the stem.

## How do you do a stem-and-leaf plot with thousands?

Drawing a stem and leaf plot: some pointers

- Write the thousands, hundreds, or tens (all digits except the last one) on the left hand side of the page.
- Draw a line to the right of these stems.
- Write the ones (the last digit of a number) on the other side of the line.

## What do line plots mean?

A line graph, also known as a line plot or a line chart, is a graph that displays quantitative values over a specified time interval and uses lines to connect individual data points.

## Why do we use stem and leaf plots?

Stem-and-leaf displays are useful for highlighting outliers and finding the mode, as well as displaying the relative density and shape of the data, giving the reader a quick overview of the distribution. They retain (most) of the raw numerical data, often with perfect integrity.

## How do you find the smallest value in a stem and leaf plot?

The smallest number in the stem-and-leaf plot is 22, which you can see by looking at the first stem and first leaf, and the greatest number is found on the chart by looking at the last stem and last leaf.
