Introduce the vocabulary and techniques used for coordinate graphing in Quadrant I with this engaging, interactive coordinate plane tool. Use number lines of different intervals to create an interactive number line that allows students to explore the placement of the x and y-axis, the origin, and how to correctly plot points using ordered pairs. This activity includes all the pieces (except the brad fasteners) to create two different interactive coordinate grids. Also included are vocabulary cards to label the parts of the coordinate plane and a simple, but effective notes page for your students interactive notebooks.
This activity is more than just plotting points! It also goes into the vocabulary and process of graphing demanded by the more rigorous state and common core standards.
Make sure to take a look at the preview to see pictures of the interactive coordinate plane!
