How to make a stem-and-leaf plot - video lesson

In this video I show how to make a stem-and-leaf plot from a set of data (number of text messages sent): we choose the tens digits to be the stems and the ones digits to be the leaves.

I also show two other examples, one of which is a double stem-and-leaf plot comparing the results of two quizzes. Besides building the stem-and-leaf plots, I discuss the medians and the overall shape (distribution) of the data.

The lesson can be used in 6th grade when students initially learn how to make a stem-and-leaf plot or as a review lesson for 7th grade students.
