Math: Stem and Leaf Plot Resources

Hi Students! Stem and Leaf plots are helpful and new for us in grade 5. It is one way to show data in a graphical format. It helps show distribution of the data and helps to visually show any outliers. We have already created circle graphs, bar graphs, and analyzed data to find the minimum, maximum, mean, mode, median and range. This new way to organize data will help you to visually see the data you have organized in a different way.
