This stem and leaf plot resource includes guided notes, a practice page, task cards and an assessment.
Your students will have the opportunity to discuss the measures of central tendency and to analyze and create stem and leaf plots. Below, you will find detailed explanations on the notes, practice problem, task cards and the assessment.
Included, you will find a guided page of notes that students can use to create their stem and leaf plots. The notes include step by step instructions that can be referenced as students study stem and leaf plots. The smaller page of notes can be glued directly into their notebooks.
In addition to the notes, there is a guided practice problem on a back to back stem and leaf plot that can be glued into the notebook as well. Students can use the step by step guided notes page to help create this stem and leaf plot. It may be helpful to create the stem and leaf plot as a class while referencing each step of the guided notes.
Included with the notes and practice problem, is a station activity with 24 task cards about stem and leaf plots. Students are asked to create stem and leaf plots, calculate the measures of central tendency and to identify the sample size. Some questions are open ended asking students to analyze the data and to make some conclusions. Students are asked to identify outliers and to describe what would happen to the measures of central tendency if the outlier was removed. The last four cards ask students to create their own stem and leaf plot, determine the measures of central tendency, determine which measure best describes the data and to list other possible displays for the data. An answer document is provided for students to record their answers.
Lastly, a twelve question assessment can be used assess student understanding of stem and leaf plots. Students are asked to interpret data from a stem and leaf plot as well as create a stem and leaf plot from a set of data. Various other questions ask about the measures of central tendency and outliers.
Answer keys are included.
