At a student's first glance, the stem-and-leaf plot appears to be a muddled mess of numbers. Then, after some work and explanation, one of my favorite A-HA moments of the year happens as one-by-one the students realize that a stem-and-leaf plot is actually a pretty easy and even fun (yes, fun!) way to organize data. Make that A-HA moment arrive even faster in your class with this easy-to-use resource!
