This is one of the more complex pictures. The student has to be persistent to complete it because it can be confusing.
Amazing Math provides fun and exciting graphing practice for your students. They won't know what the mystery picture is until they have graphed and connected most of the points. The suspense will drive them to complete the picture. Have the students color it, put it on a piece of construction paper for a frame, and post it in your favorite place in your classroom or hallway. Other students will be jealous at the beautiful art your students created. Also, the students didn't even realize they were having fun doing Amazing Math.
This order consist of a color finished product, a black outline product, and the list of coordinate pairs to draw the picture. You can download a sheet of numbered 4 Quadrant Grid page from my TPT page for free. My four quadrant pictures are much more of a challenge than the beginner 1 quadrant pictures. Even so, I hope your students enjoy.
Directions: The students should begin at the origin of the graph paper. The student should move left or right first, and then up or down second. Left if the first number of the ordered pair is a negative number and right if the number is a positive number. Then, the student should move up if the second number of the ordered pair is a positive number and down that many units if the number is a negative number. If the first number of the ordered pair is a zero, the student will not move left or right. If the second number of the ordered pair is a zero, the student will not move up or down. The student should put a dot at the location of the ordered pair. That dot should be connected to the following dot of the next ordered pair. The student should continue connecting the dots until the list of ordered pairs says "STOP". Then, the student should begin a new line starting with the next ordered pair listed.
Any graph paper with 4 quadrants will work. I suggest you use my numbered graph paper listed on my tpt website.
