Use prior knowledge to plot an ordered pair on a Cartesian plane. Children chart an original picture of themselves by charting their points. They also apply this skill to longitude and latitude. A quiz helps assess their understanding.
Show learners that by comparing two ordered pairs, the distance between points on a map can be found. Make a copy of the town map shown in the video to pass out and use with the guided practice. Challenge learners with the extension activity that has them creating their own maps. The resource is the last in a series that uses coordinates for the vertices of a polygon and then finds the length of its side.  
Order is important! An ordered pair is comprised of an x-value, and a y-value. The x-value always comes first. This ordered pair represents a point on a coordinate plane. If the order of the x-value and the y-value are switched then they will represent a different point on the graph. So make sure the order of the values is always (x, y).
Fourth graders properly read and plot ordered pairs on a coordinate grid. They draw a letter of the alphabet on their own coordinate grid, using dots (or ?points?) and write the corresponding ordered pairs below their coordinate grid.
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.
There are several ways to determine if an ordered pair is the solution to a linear equation. The ordered pair can be plugged in to the equation to check if it's a solution. However, in this video the instructor sets up a table and plugs the x-value into the equation to solve for the y-value. Then she makes comparisons of the original ordered pairs and the resulting ordered pairs gotten from the table to determine if the ordered pairs are solutions to the equation.
An ordered pair is comprised of an x-value, and a y-value. The x-value always comes first, then the y-value in an ordered pair. This ordered pair represents a point on a coordinate plane. There are many meanings of an ordered pair and its point on a graph. Watch this video and see what the teacher has to say about ordered pairs.
Check to see if a given ordered pair is a solution to an inequality. Just plug the given values into the given inequality and do the math. If the resulting statement is true then the given ordered pair is a solution. If the statement is false the given ordered pair is not a solution to the inequality. Watch this video as the instructor illustrates how to plug in the values and determine if the solution works.
A one-minute clip shows how to graph ordered pairs, a definition, example, and process are provided. This video is not narrated and uses nothing but visual aids and written explanations. Great for visual learners.
Seventh graders investigate the concept of ordered pairs as found in Algebra. They are introduced to the data set that corresponds to the coordinate system. Also students practice the graphing the ordered pairs using the x and y axis.
Students investigate ordered pairs. In this math instructional activity, students plot and locate ordered pairs in a coordinate plane and are exposed to how to read and create a map.
Sinking ships, construction paper, coordinate planes, sounds like fun day in math class. Play the game Battleship with your class and reinforce the concept of graphing ordered pairs.
In this math worksheet, students learn to graph ordered pairs. Students examine a graph with 3 labeled points and tell the ordered pairs for each. Students also plot 8 ordered pairs on a graph they draw themselves.
Students review ordered pairs. In this graphing lesson, students review ordered pairs with the teacher. This lesson includes a brief teacher script to help guide the students in understanding.
Explore graphing ordered pairs. Learners identify and describe parts of a coordinate grid, graph ordered pairs, explore positiive and negative numbers, and create an ordered pair activity using a software program. Several web links are included.
Identify the coordinate points on an overhead using graph paper with houses placed at coordinate points. The class reads ordered pairs and locate ordered pair points as they play a game in which they are using a map to locate addresses. This comprehesive lesson plan even includes the handouts that you will need to implement it.
Seventh graders graph ordered pairs on a coordinate plane. They create a scatterplot. Additionally, they determine the line of best fit and investigate the slope of the line. Multiple resources are provided. An excellent resource!
Learners graph growing patterns using ordered pairs on a coordinate grid. They read The Fly on the Ceiling, a Math Myth.
Introduce your fifth graders to the coordinate plane, ordered pairs, and plotting points on any of the four quadrants. This wonderful resource makes preparation for your math class quick and easy. It explains everything the class will need to know in a straightforward, step-by-step way.
Where do the coordinates lead? As children brainstorm ways to find the location of different buildings, they learn about coordinate points and how to use them to locate areas on a grid or map. They practice using ordered pairs by playing a Battleship game and by using an interactive website.
