Hi, my name is Stefan. Today, I'm going to be speaking on stem and leaf math activities. A good stem and leaf for activities to do is to plot the grades. This is a stem and leaf activity for grades. Now here are some grades you can have someone score a 91, then another person is scoring a 92, another person is scoring a 93 and you could have two people scoring a 93 and the 9s and the 8s are the numbers in the 10s place, these are more like the stems and the individual numbers meaning the 91 and the 92, those are the leaves, things that correspond to the 10s place and this is a good experiment to do, table to do because it gets you to show the exact grades that students are getting and it's also good because it gives you a general visual display of the class's information. You know just by looking at this I can see that the majority of the class is scoring in the As, in the Bs, I can also see the number of people that scored in the As, the number of people that scored in the Bs, so there's a good plot to do using stem and leaf because it gives you a lot of data.
