Pupils explore the TI-73 Explorer. In this middle school mathematics instructional activity, students investigate the pen feature of the TI-73 Explorer as they draw geometric shapes 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.
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.
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.
Students 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.
Students 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.
Students solve proofs dealing with the coordinate plane. In this geometry lesson, students verify properties of triangles and quadrilaterals.
Coordinate planes and Cartesian graphing systems are the focus of this math activity. Learners use video, internet activities, and engage in hands-on activities in order to explore coordinate planes. The materials needed for this activity are included in the teacher prep section of the activity.
Twelfth graders explore transforming matrices representing figures in the coordinate plane by entering data points of figures such as triangles and quadrilaterals into a matrix. High schoolers dilate, rotate, reflect, and translate the figures by multiplying by translation matrices.
In this coordinate plane instructional activity, 10th graders solve and complete 25 various types of problems. First, they graph each point in the coordinate plane. Then, students find the distance between the points to the nearest tenth. They also find the coordinates of the midpoint of each segment.
In this lines in the coordinate plane worksheet, 10th graders solve and complete 46 various types of problems. First, they write an equation of the line with the given slope that contains the given points. Then, students graph each line using slope-intercept form. They also write equations for the horizontal line and the vertical line that contain the given points.
Students explore the concept of the coordinate plane. For this coordinate plane lesson, students graph points on the coordinate plane using an applet. Students graph functions using an applet. Students play a Maze Game where they must use coordinates to solve the maze.
Sixth graders are introduced to how geometry and algebra are related. In groups, they graph various points on a coordinate plane and write the ordered pair for each quadrant. Using this information, they create their own tangrams to end the lesson.
Seventh graders visualize and identify geometric shapes after applying transformations on a coordinate plane. In this tangrams lesson, 7th graders construct a set of tangrams and then answer extension questions related to measurement, fractions, and transformations.
Students explore Cartesian Graphing by exploring two-dimensional space in which they navigate the coordinate plane.
Young scholars explore the concept of squares and parallelograms. In this squares and parallelograms instructional activity, students find the coordinates of the vertices of special quadrilaterals in the coordinate plane. Young scholars are given two vertices in the coordinate plane and must find the other two vertices of the quadrilateral.
Studetns identify properties of a coordinate plane, labeling the quadrants. In this geometry lesson plan, students plot ponts on the coordinate plane and identify the coordinate pairs. The use the rectangular coordinate system to discuss axes and quadrants.
In this coordinate plane activity, students find the coordinates of the midpoint of a given segment and determine the length of a side. They find the slope of segments. This one-page activity contains 18 multi-step problems.
