1. Stem & Leaf Problem
I made a stupid stupid stupid mistake on the maths paper on yesterday..... I done my stem and leaf diagram like this

20 | 9

etc etc

But I done the key like this as well 20 | 9 = 29

will i still get the marks? Or did i screw it up too badly.

When I say 20 | 9 I mean for example 20 | 9 instead of 2 | 9 for the number 29

Thanks,

You're definitely going to lose at least 1 mark but I'd need to see the question/marks available to give my opinion on what you will get.

E.g. say it was a 3 mark question with 2 marks for the diagram and 1 mark for the key then it's likely that you would get 1/2 for the diagram and no marks mark for the key since it is false. So that's 1/3 for the question.

Thanks, I guess 1 is better than none.

Are you sure thats even correct?

S&L goes like this;
Make a stem and leaf diagram of animals at a zoo up to 29
0|9 = 9

1| 9 = 19

2| 9 = 29

I don't think you'll get marked for that tbh, but then again, it's on 3 marks, how did you do on the rest of your maths paper?

The key is usually only one mark, the other 2-3 will be filling in the table, so hopefully you got that !

Hi, I don't think you will get the marks. Sorry . Normally its 2]5 means 25.

Can I ask what paper you did?
Because I have Unit 1 Maths on Tuesday any tips?
Thanks.
