Stem and Leaf Plot is a special tabular tool where each data value is split into a "stem" and a "leaf". Here is the sorted set of data values that will be used in the following example:

14, 18, 19, 19, 20, 21, 23, 28, 29, 33

First, it must be determined what the stems will represent and what the leaves will represent. Generally, the leaf contains the last digit of the number and the stem contains all of the other digits. In this example, the leaf represents the ones place and the stem will represent the tens place. It is important to note that when there is a repeated number in the data (such as two 19s) then the plot must reflect this fact.

With this applet, you can generate random data and create stem and leaf plot.
