Ready to introduce your class to the coordinate plane? This website includes a detailed lesson plan that includes two interactive games to help learners practice graphing ordered pairs. The scripted discussion is a little cheesy and a little more direction might be necessary for the games, but would be an easy way to practice graphing online.
In this geometry worksheet, students plot points on a coordinate plane and identify the different quadrants each point is in. They have to be able to identify coordinate pairs, given the points on the graph. There are 62 questions.
Learners explore the distance formula. They use Cabri, Jr. to explore distances in a coordinate plane. The lessons requires pupils to calculate distance with both the distance formula and the Pythagorean Theorem in order to discover the relationship between the two.
Tenth graders investigate the distance formula. In this geometry lesson, 10th graders explore distances in the coordinate plane. Students calculate distance using the distance formula and verify the results using the measuring capabilities of the TI-nspire application. Students also find distance using the Pythagorean Theorem.
Students explore the TI-73 Explorer. For this middle school mathematics lesson, students investigate the pen feature of the TI-73 Explorer as they draw geometric shapes on a coordinate plane.
Students find the coordinates of the vertices of special quadrilaterals placed in the coordinate plane. They find the coordinates of missing vertices of squares and parallelograms.
Students study how to graph ordered pairs on a coordinate plane. After a teacher demonstration, students work together to complete problems. They explain and share their answers. As an activity, they solve a mystery story about the coordinate plane.
Sixth graders go to the computer lab and use the General Coordinate Game applet created by the Shodor Foundation to obtain a more specific understanding of the coordinate plane, its parts, and how it can be used to graph points.
Eighth graders explore the coordinate system. They identify the x and y-axis, parts of the coordinate plane, and discuss the process of plotting points. To emphasize the process of plotting points, 8th graders play an ordered pair game. Students use ordered pairs to write step-by-step directions that will allow a mouse to pass through a maze to get to some cheese. They discuss how you may use the coordinate system in real life.
Learners use computer applets to demonstrate three dimensional coordinate planes. In this coordinate planes lesson plan, students play a coordinate game and a maze game.
Sixth graders explore geometric figures. In this geometry lesson, 6th graders manipulate properties and relationships of geometric figures to identify objects on the coordinate planes and describe where figures sit on the planes.
Middle schoolers create a treasure map by plotting points on a coordinate plane using a computer drawing program. Students name and identify different landmasses and structures on their map. They create instructions to find the treasure that is located somewhere on their map.
The title of this resource inadvertently leaves out the very important word solve, because your students will learn how to both graph and solve problems with a coordinate plane when they watch this video. The lesson incorporates geometry into the plane by plotting different coordinates of a shape. Your learners will find the length or width of two points using absolute value. Go a step farther and have your pupils solve for perimeter or area. Video is sixth in a seven-part series. Use with other videos in series for more practice on graphing and coordinates.
Here is a lesson on coordinates that has pupils view three Cyberchase video clips illustrating the definition of "point" and "line." Along the way, learners will discuss what characters from the videos do, and where problems lie in their reasoning. Finally, they practice plotting points in all four quadrants of the coordinate plane on the accompanying handouts (links embedded into webpage). An assessment is also included.
Learners investigate triangles and their properties. In this geometry lesson, students differentiate between similar and congruent triangles. They use the SSS theorem to help identify the triangles that are similar or congruent.
Students solve proofs dealing with the coordinate plane. In this geometry lesson, students verify properties of triangles and quadrilaterals.
In this college level coordinate geometry instructional activity, students identify and graph points on a coordinate plane, find the missing side of a right triangle, determine the distance between two points, and find the midpoint of a line segment. The two page instructional activity contains fifty-two problems. Answers are included.
Students apply definitions and theorems to verify special quadrilaterals using coordinate geometry. They apply the slope formula, the midpoint formula, and the distance formula to justify that a given quadrilateral is a parallelogram. Answer Key included.
For this geometry worksheet, 10th graders solve problems that are based on the theorems associated with perpendicular and angle bisectors of a triangle. An application on the coordinate plane is included. The one page worksheet contains fourteen problems. Answers are included.
Eighth graders locate points on a coordinate plane given its coordinates and identify the point on a graph. They then graph the ordered pairs in all 4 quadrants to focus on their graph reading skills.
