LO: To construct and compare data from a stemandleaf and dot plots
Know:

What is a stemandleaf plot.

How to interpret a stemandleaf plot.

How to interpret a graph.
Understand:

That stemandleaf plots are a graphical way of helping us organise data in rank order which makes it easier to interpret the data.
Do:

I can construct and compare data from a stemandleaf plot.

I can construct and compare data from a dot plot.
Elaborations

understanding that some data representations are more appropriate than others for particular data sets, and answering questions about those data sets

using ordered stemandleaf plots to record and display numerical data collected in a class investigation, such as constructing a class plot of height in centimetres on a shared stemandleaf plot for which the stems 12, 13, 14, 15, 16 and 17 have been produced.

select an appropriate type of graph to represent a set of data, graph the data using technology, and justify the choice of graph.
