This activity includes a set of interactive notes, a board game activity and a mini assessment all related to graphing and locating of point on a coordinate plane in quadrant 1.
5.(8) Geometry and measurement. The student applies mathematical process standards to identify locations on a coordinate plane. The student is expected to:
(A) describe the key attributes of the coordinate plane, including perpendicular number lines (axes) where the intersection (origin) of the two lines coincides with zero on each number line and the given point (0, 0); the x-coordinate, the first number in an ordered pair, indicates movement parallel to the x-axis starting at the origin; and the y-coordinate, the second number, indicates movement parallel to the y-axis starting at the origin;
(B) describe the process for graphing ordered pairs of numbers in the first quadrant of the coordinate plane;
Graph points on the coordinate plane to solve real-world and mathematical problems.
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).
