Geometry

:

Coordinates

Use coordinates to find a location on a grid.

Supporting targets:
1:

Identify the x- and y-axis on a coordinate plane.

2:

Locate points in all four quadrants of the coordinate plane.

3:

Recognize which quadrant a point is in, based on the properties of its coordinate pairs.

4:

Understand that the first number in a coordinate pair indicates placement on the x-axis and the second indicates placement on the y-axis.

5:

Graph points in the first and second quadrant of the coordinate plane.

Grade:

5th

Vocabulary:

Coordinate Plane, Coordinates, Plot, Point, Graph, Positive, Negative, X-Axis, Y-Axis

Activities:

Students reviewed the parts of a coordinate plane.

 

Students deciphered riddles by finding the corresponding coordinates on a plane, which were labeled by letters.

 

Students plotted given coordinate points to finish a picture.

Challenge Problem:

Students were sent home with the picture that they were graphing in class.

Challenge Data:

N/A

Guiding Questions:

Remind students which coordinates are associated with each part of the plane.

 

Quadrant I has a positive x and a positive y; Quadrant II has a negative x and negative y; Quadrant III has a negative x and a negative y; and Quadrant IV has a positive x and a negative y.
