This product includes a 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. Students can glue the notes 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.
Included with the notes and practice problem, there 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.
