PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Mystery picture graphs are a great way to make graphing coordinate pairs (or ordered pairs) fun! Students respond to them best when the mystery picture is something relevant to them. This mystery graph reveals a smartphone, which can then be decorated or used as part of the lesson. Students can draw whatever they want on the screen, such as a Twitter or Facebook post from a famous figure, unique app icons that relate to what they are learning, and more. The possibilities for cross-subject teaching are endless!

Difficulty level: 4 out of 5 - This graph includes coordinate pairs in all four quadrants. Values are whole numbers or decimals that end in .5 (see preview)

The download file includes the printable list of coordinate pairs with directions and an example of the finished product. It does not include a coordinate plane. I recommend having students make their own coordinate plane on graph paper (this is great practice, and you can download printable graph paper for free from www.printablepaper.com) or using a free printable coordinate plane. In my experience, it is best NOT to print a coordinate plane on the back of the list of coordinate pairs, as students have difficulty flipping back and forth and remembering the pairs correctly. If you are seeking to save paper, I recommend printing the directions and coordinate pair sheet two to a page instead.
