## Stem and-leaf plotsPresentation Transcript

• Stem-and-Leaf Plots Susan Phillips Lee’s Summit, MO
• Stem-and-Leaf Plot  Uses place value to organize data  Shows data in an organized way so it can be analyzed easily  Organizes data so it is easier to find the median, mode, and range
• Here are the scores for a freshman basketball team  Here is the same data organized into a stem-and-leaf plot.
• Can you tell how the stem-and-leaf plot was made? The first number in the data is 27. Here is the 2 in the tens place. Here is the 7 in the ones place.
• The key shows us which place value the digits represent.
• The stems all represent tens place in this stem-and-leaf plot. The leaves all represent ones.
• Let’s try one together…
• Here are one student’s math test scores. Make a stem-and-leaf plot for this data. First, draw the dividing lines.
• Here are one student’s math test scores. Make a stem-and-leaf plot for this data. Stems Next, label the stem side and the leaf side. Leaves
• Here are one student’s math test scores. Make a stem-and-leaf plot for this data. Stems Leaves 7 5 Find the smallest piece of data and plot it on the grid.
• Here are one student’s math test scores. Make a stem-and-leaf plot for this data. Stems Leaves 7 5 9 Find the next smallest piece of data and plot it on the grid. The 7 for the tens place is already there. We just add the 9.
• Continue with this process until you have entered all the data. Stems Leaves 7 5 9 8 3 4 6 6 8 9 1 4 9
• Remember to add a title. Test Scores Stems Leaves 7 5 9 8 3 4 6 6 8 9 1 4 9
• Don’t forget the key! Test Scores Stems Leaves 7 5 9 8 3 4 6 6 8 9 1 4 9 Key: 7 5 means 75
• You just completed a stem-and-leaf plot!
• Now, try it on your own…
• This table shows the times in seconds and hundredths of seconds for the women’s 500-meter speed-skating competition in the 2002 Winter Olympics.
• Use this data to make a stem-and-leaf plot. 2002 Winter Olympics 500-Meter Speed-Skating Times in Seconds
• Check your work… 2002 Winter Olympics 500-Meter Speed-Skating Times in Seconds
• Using Stem-and-Leaf Plots Boxes of Girl Scout Cookies Sold by Troop 220  What was the least number of cookies sold? 40 boxes
• Using Stem-and-Leaf Plots Boxes of Girl Scout Cookies Sold by Troop 220  What was the largest number of cookies sold? 94 boxes
• Using Stem-and-Leaf Plots Boxes of Girl Scout Cookies Sold by Troop 220  Find the median of the data Find the middle leaf… 63 boxes
• Using Stem-and-Leaf Plots Boxes of Girl Scout Cookies Sold by Troop 220  Find the mode of the data Look for the number that occurs most often in a row of leaves 63 boxes
• Stem-and-Leaf Plots The End
