One-Step Equations and Coordinate Graphing
Four Quadrants (Grid 15 x 20 Portrait)
This equation solving / coordinate graphing project is fun for the student, makes a great bulletin board display and is ideal for reviewing coordinate graphing skills and equation solving skills.
By solving equations, students will create pairs of Cartesian coordinates to create the diagonal lines of the spider web. After they finish with that, they will plot the remainder of the web using a list of coordinate points.
This activity can be a class project or something to be worked on independently when time allows. It also works as an extra credit assignment or when there is a substitute teacher.

If you like these projects please let us know. There are many projects, activities and math labs covering the entire school year and some projects are cross curricular (Sports, Patriotism, Seasons, Holidays, History, and Science). Lessons begin at 2nd grade and are also appropriate for the Middle School and some for High School students. These projects have been used successfully at both the Elementary and Middle School levels.
All projects are copyrighted, so please don’t distribute them to all of your colleagues. Instead direct them to our Store,

Specify locations and describe spatial relationships using coordinate geometry and other representational systems.
Common Core State Standards
CCSS.Math.Content.5.G.A.1 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).
Solve word problems leading to equations of the form px + q = r and p(x + q) = r, where p, q, and r are specific rational numbers.
Solve linear equations with rational number coefficients, including equations whose solutions require expanding expressions using the distributive property and collecting like terms.
