I am very excited to share with you my power point on The Coordinate Plane.
^ This thirty-four page presentation brings students into a whole new realm of mathematics where algebra and geometry meet for the first time in the world of numbers.
* I have included a bit of history trivia as to how the coordinate plane arrived with its name, "The Cartesian Plane," and an interesting tid-bit about it's creator.
* From there, the lesson discusses the origin, x-axis, y-axis, ordered pairs, x-coordinates, y-coordinates, and the quadrants,.
* Students are instructed in the skill of identifying coordinates, plotting points on the Cartesian Plane, identifying which quadrant a point is located, and making a scatter plot.
* Lastly, students are introduced to interpreting their data on the scatter plot.
Please share my enthusiasm for this presentation.
