Coordinates on a Grid
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.

Graph Each Ordered Pair - Five Worksheets
This resource is composed of five separate worksheets on ordered pairs. After plotting each ordered pair, learners label each point, connect the points to create a figure, identify the polygon type, find the perimeter and area of the polygon, and determine if the two figures on each page are congruent, explaining their reasoning.

Why Is It Called an Ordered Pair?
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.

Human Coordinate Plane: An Array of Desks
Use a kinesthetic activity to elucidate ordered pairs and coordinate planes. Arrange desks in a square array and distribute to learners cards with ordered pairs based on the locations of their seats. By having various groups of learners stand up depending on what number they have in their ordered pair or the sum of their coordinates, they can develop a visceral understanding of x- and y-axes, lines, and visual representations of equations like x + y < 2.
