This activity gives students practice solving systems of linear equations and plotting points. Students solve 15 different systems of equations to complete the list of coordinate points. Then students plot the points, connecting as they go, but only within the designated zones.
When they are done, they will have a picture of a sweet three-dimensional image of The Octants.

Here are some tips:
 All points will be on one grid line or another.
 A completed picture has been provided to be used as a key.
 You can download my custom made FREE GRAPH PAPER
from my store.
 I have also found that printing graph paper directly from themathworksheetsite.com
helps out, but any graph paper will do.
 Remember to copy double-sided when necessary to save paper
