Stem and Leaf Plots

A Stem and Leaf Plot is a special table where each data value is split into a "leaf" (usually the last digit) and a "stem" (the other digits). Like in this example:


"32" is split into "3" (stem) and "2" (leaf).

Stem and Leaf Plot

The "stem" values are listed down, and the "leaf" values go right (or left) from the stem values.

The "stem" is used to group the scores and each "leaf" shows the individual scores within each group.
