Lesson: Stem-and-Leaf Plots Mathematics
In this lesson, we will learn how to use a stem-and-leaf plot to organize data sets.
List, from least to greatest, the stems of a stem-and-leaf plot representing the following data set: 2, 29, 65, 31, and 93.
The stem-and-leaf plot shows the ages of people at a birthday party.
How many people attended the birthday party?
A class of students were asked to count and record the number of bugs they could find in their yards in 30 minutes. The results were as follows:
Write the stems, in ascending order, of a stem-and-leaf plot for the data.
Display the data in a stem-and-leaf plot.
Use your stem-and-leaf plot to find out how many students counted bugs in their yards.
