Stem and Leaf Plots

Definition

A Stem and Leaf Plot is a special table where each data value is split into a “stem” (the first digit or digits) and a “leaf” (usually the last digit).

See this example:

Example

“47” is split into “4” (stem) and “7” (leaf).

10, 11, 22, 23, 24, 35, 36, 47, 48, 49

StemLeaf
10, 1
22, 3, 4
35, 6
47, 8, 9

More Examples:

Stem “1” Leaf “1” means 11

Stem “2” Leaf “4” means 24

Stem “3” Leaf “5” means 35

etc

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.
