Sal helps with data organization in this video, which focuses on stem and leaf plots. Clarifying that "this is just one of many, many, many ways to visualize data that you will run into in your mathematical or statistical futures," he explains the concept in a way that is helpful for both struggling and advanced mathematicians.
In this stem and leaf plots worksheet, students solve and complete 10 different problems that include designing stem and leaf plots. First, they use the table on the left to determine the least score and the range of the total scores shown. Then, students use the second table to determine the number of games played and the average of games played.
Upper graders and middle schoolers collect, organize, and draw conclusions about pulse rate data. Students take and record a resting, exercising and recovery pulse rate, then display the resulting data. Pupils complete a stem and leaf graph, a histogram, and a box plot, then compare their pulse rate with the class average. Everyone analyzes their data by completing several worksheets.
Learners study the concept of data analysis by finding their pulses and comparing their pulse rates to other students. They draw conclusions about their physical fitness as it relates to others. Data is collected and organized into stem and leaf plots, histograms and box plots.
Young scholars explore the concept of stem and leaf plots. In this stem and leaf plots lesson, students plot the 50 US states' capitals on a stem and leaf plot according to the first letter of each state. Young scholars compare their stem and leaf plots with their classmates.
Middle and high schoolers collect and analyze data from four different activities. The activities include information about classmates, tallying colors of cars in a parking lot, stem and leaf plots, and making a histogram from winning lottery numbers. An answer key is provided.
Eighth graders collect, analyze, and display data in a variety of visual displays. They define key vocabulary terms, then using several bags of M&M's, they create tally marks, create a circle graph, bar graph, box and whisker plot, and stem and leaf plot to display the data from their bag of candies.
