### PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Students will use their knowledge of coordinate graphing and ordered pairs to create a drawing of the Washington Monument. This will be created by plotting ordered pairs and then connecting them with straight lines.

These coordinate graphing projects are fun for the student and make a great bulletin board idea as well. This project can be used for President’s Day a social studies class or a mathematics class.

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.

This project is for the beginning coordinate graphing student. The graph consists of ordered pairs with whole numbers and the fraction ½ for detail. When finished, they can use markers, colored pencils or other medium to enhance the project.

* Coordinate graph paper for plotting (with both a light, medium and dark grid)
* Coordinate list
* Sample of the completed project in color.

Also included is:
* Student Directions for Plotting Coordinates
* Directions for Plotting Coordinates with Fractions
* Directions for Plotting Coordinates in Quadrant I
* Directions for Plotting Coordinates in All Quadrants
* Details for Plotting Coordinates with Fractions in Quadrant I
* Details for Plotting Coordinates with Fractions in All Quadrants.

If you like this project, please let us know. There are many projects covering the entire school year and some projects which are cross curricular (Sports, Patriotism, Seasons, Holidays, History, Landmarks, Foreign Language and Science). Lessons begin at 2nd grade and are appropriate for the Elementary School, Middle School and some for High School students. These projects have been used successfully at both the Elementary and Middle School levels.

NCTM Standards
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).
