Coordinate Plane (4 Quadrants): Mathematical Tasks Graphing on the Coordinate Plane
One of my favorite activities to use in my class are Mathematical Tasks. I use these Mathematical Tasks for partnering activities, group work, independent practice, assessment prep, or in my centers. Included in this set are 10 Tasks, partner and group recording sheets, black and white copies, and an answer key. I created this Mathematical Task for my 6th grade class, but it could also be used in a 7th or 8th grade class too.
This set of Mathematical Tasks asks students to complete the following types of tasks:
Plot and label ordered pairs on the coordinate plane.
Describe the x-axis and y-axis
Indicate the quadrant a point lies
Reflect points across the x-axis
Reflect points across the y-axis
Calculate the distance between a pair of points using absolute value
Plot geometric figures on the coordinate plane
Find the perimeter and area of the geometric figures

I recommend printing these task cards in color and laminating for years of use. Students are more motivated when they see the color tasks.
