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.
Lesson Plan - Distance in the Coordinate Plane
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.
Distance in the Coordinate Plane-ID: 8680
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.
Plotting Pairs of Coordinate Points in all Four Quadrants to Construct Lines
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.
An Introduction to the Coordinate Plane
In this geometry instructional activity, 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.
Quadrilaterals in the 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.
Lesson 3: Graphing Ordered Pairs on a Coordinate Plane
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.
The Coordinate Plane with the TI-73 Explorer
Students explore the TI-73 Explorer. In this middle school mathematics lesson, students investigate the pen feature of the TI-73 Explorer as they draw geometric shapes on a coordinate plane.
Graph and Mathematical Problems Using a Coordinate Plane
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.
Coordinate Plane Artwork
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.
Graphing on a Coordinate Plane
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.
Young scholars use computer applets to demonstrate three dimensional coordinate planes. For this coordinate planes lesson plan, students play a coordinate game and a maze game.
Geometric Figures and the Coordinate Plane
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.
Coordinate Plane Treasure Hunt
Pupils 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.
Points, Regions, Distance and Midpoints
In this college level coordinate geometry worksheet, 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 worksheet contains fifty-two problems. Answers are included.
Line 'Em Up!
Coordinate planes and Cartesian graphing systems are the focus of this math instructional activity. Learners use video, internet activities, and engage in hands-on activities in order to explore coordinate planes. The materials needed for this instructional activity are included in the teacher prep section of the instructional activity.
Application of Properties of Quadrilaterals in the Coordinate Plane
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.
You Sank My Battleship
What a great idea! The game "You Sank My Battleship" is perfect for understanding the coordinate plane and ordered pairs. Gung-ho battle masters plot ordered pairs using the coordinate plane to determine in which quadrant these ordered pairs lie. They show mastery of plotting ordered pairs to sink the opposing team's battleship.
Graphing Linear Equations and Functions
Here is a complete chapter on graphing linear equations and functions. Learners review graphing points on a coordinate plane, graph lines and functions, and write linear equations.
Perpendicular and Angle Bisectors
In 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.
