Product Description

First Quadrant Only (Grid 40 x 30 Landscape)

Uses fractional points with 1/2 [ex.: (4 1/2, 6) ]

Uses 4 fractional points with 1/2 in the x- and y-coordinate[ex.: (9 1/2, 6 1/2) ]

This coordinate graphing project is fun for the student, makes a great bulletin board display and is ideal for reviewing coordinate graphing skills.

Students will use their knowledge of coordinate graphing and ordered pairs to create a drawing of a football helmet with the logo of the San Francisco 49ers on it. This will be created by plotting ordered pairs and then connecting them with straight lines. The students will graph the ovals; the SF will be included on the graphing paper which is provided. Even though directions are included for all quadrants, this project is in the first quadrant only.

This activity can be a class project or something to be worked on independently when time allows. It also works as an extra credit assignment or when there is a substitute teacher.

The graph consists of points in the first quadrant using ordered pairs with several points using the fraction 1/2. There are four (4) points where both the x-coordinate and y-coordinate use the fraction 1/2 (Ex.: 21/2, 41/2). These four points occur in the oval on page 2 of the project. These types of points do not occur on the helmet on page 1. When finished, they can use markers, colored pencils or other medium to enhance the project.

• Coordinate graph paper for plotting (with a light, medium and a dark grid)
• Coordinate list
• Sample of the completed project in color
• Coordinate graph paper for plotting the helmet only. Students can add their own logo

Instructional Materials include:

• Student Directions for Plotting Coordinates
• Directions for Plotting Coordinates with Fractions and Decimals
• Directions for Plotting Coordinates in Quadrant I
• Directions for Plotting Coordinates in All Quadrants
• Details for Plotting Coordinates with Fractions in Quadrant I
• Details for Plotting Coordinates with Fractions in All Quadrants.

If you like this project, please let us know. There are many projects covering the entire school year and some projects are cross curricular (Sports, Patriotism, Seasons, Holidays, History, and Science). Lessons begin at 2nd grade and are appropriate for the Elementary School, Middle School and some for High School students. These projects have been used successfully at both the Elementary and Middle School levels.

NCTM Standards

Specify locations and describe spatial relationships using coordinate geometry and other representational systems.

Common Core State Standards

CCSS.Math.Content.5.G.A.1 Use a pair of perpendicular number lines, called axes, to define a coordinate system, with the intersection of the lines (the origin) arranged to coincide with the 0 on each line and a given point in the plane located by using an ordered pair of numbers, called its coordinates. Understand that the first number indicates how far to travel from the origin in the direction of one axis, and the second number indicates how far to travel in the direction of the second axis, with the convention that the names of the two axes and the coordinates correspond (e.g., x-axis and x-coordinate, y-axis and y-coordinate).

TEKS

5.8C: Graph in the first quadrant of the coordinate plane ordered pairs of numbers arising from mathematical and real-world problems, including those generated by number patterns or found in an input-output table.

VA SOLS

6.8 b) identify the coordinates of a point and graph ordered pairs in a coordinate plane.
