Where Are We?
Students use Cartesian coordinates or degrees of latitude and longitude to locate important locations within their specific countries. They Use a grid to apply the concept of latitude and longitude, or positive and negative Cartesian coordinates, to determine the position of an object in the room.

Gridding A Site
Students use a map and the Cartesian coordinate system to establish a grid system over an archaeological site, labeling each grid unit. They also determine the location of artifacts within each grid unit and construct a scientific inquiry concerning the location of artifacts on the site.

The Next Dimension
Learners explore the three dimensional Cartesian coordinate system and discuss how it is important for structural engineers in order to be able to describe locations in space to fellow engineers. They participate in a hands-on activity in which they practice finding points in space, and describing the location of given points in space.

Graphing and the Coordinate Plane
Students examine the four quadrants of Cartesian coordinate plane. They play maze games and coordinate games to discover how to read and plot points on the plane. Students plot points on the coordinate plane and examine the ratio of rise over run for the slope.

Plane Ole Plotting
Elementary schoolers create and label the important components of a Cartesian coordinate system. Along with paper and pencil work, groups of pupils access the "General Coordinates Game" online to get further practice in these unique mathematical calculations.
4th - 6th Math 18 Views 38 Downloads CCSS: Designed
Young scholars investigate points in the Cartesian coordinate plane. For this points in the Cartesian coordinate plane lesson, students use a simulator to move points around the coordinate plane. Young scholars identify the signs of the x and y coordinates in the various quadrants.
