Stem and Leaf Plots with Decimals?


Stem and leaf plots with decimals are a valuable way to organize data. You can use a stem and leaf plot with decimals in much the same way as you do with whole numbers. You will want to create a key that makes it clear to readers that you are organizing decimals rather than whole numbers. Simply organize your numbers from least to greatest, and place the whole number portion of the number on the stem, and the decimal on the leaf.
