Graphing and the Coordinate Plane
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.

Plotting Ordered Pairs on a Four Quadrant Grid
Consider how to plot the positive and negative numbers in the four quadrants of a coordinate plane. The lesson is scaffolded through teacher modeling before moving into creating their own labeled grid and drawing geometric shapes. A written reflection serves as a post-assessment, Listed at the end are extra suggestions, such as differentiation possibilities, extensions, and home connections.

Lines Parallel to a Side of a Triangle
Your geometry learners will thoroughly explore the Side-Splitting Theorem and how a line, parallel to one of the sides of a triangle, splits the other two sides proportionally. They then collaborate to complete three exploratory tasks involving geometric construction, Geometers Sketch Pad, and distance formula on a graph in the coordinate plane, to write a conjecture and test it.
