    It's called that because a leaf is on a stem just like in the stem and leaf plot work... The stem is the first number and the leaf is the second one... Example Stem = 1 on 12 and the leaf is 2... Get it?

    a leaf is on a stem just like in the stem and leaf plot. what? the leaf (in the plot) is not on the stem. that made no sense.

    I think this stuff was in my 7th grade math book, but the teachers probably skipped it because they didn't know it.
