#### Writing Task 6.NS.6

Engage young mathematicians in using their knowledge of the coordinate plane to reduce Baltimore's crime rate with a fun exit card problem. After first using a coordinate grid to graph the ordered pairs corresponding to crime locations,...

Lesson Planet

#### Battle Ship Using Grid Paper

You sank my battleship! The iconic cry of the time-honored game, Battleship will be heard in classrooms with this learning game that requires only grid paper, pencils, and an introductory knowledge of the first quadrant of the coordinate...

Lesson Planet

#### Coordinates 1

In this math learning exercise, students fill in a chart by determining the location of different shapes on a coordinate system. Students are reminded to crawl (x-axis) before they climb (y-axis).

Lesson Planet

#### Shapes on a grid #1

Before learning about the coordinate plane and ordered pairs, have kids get used finding locations on the grid. They are given a simple set of coordinates, which they will locate on the grid. A great way to introduce the concept.

Lesson Planet

#### Location on a Grid

There are 12 symbols on this large grid, and scholars must record a location for each. They use the coordinate pair system which is made easier because every symbol is directly inside a square. Use this to introduce coordinate pair...

Lesson Planet

#### Location on a Grid

Make coordinate pairs more engaging by having beginners color-code a grid based on given locations. The grid has numbers along the y-axis and letters along the x-axis, introducing them to the ordering of coordinate pairs with the x-axis...

Lesson Planet

#### Traveling Around the World?

Using a longitude and latitude map that relates to the coordinate grid and job description cards that come with places to travel to, young mathematical travelers use the distance formula and The Pythagorean Theorem to answer questions...

Lesson Planet

#### Geometric Figures & Coordinate Space

Math whizzes examine the shape properties on a coordinate grid and explore how the coordinate system enables us to discover the properties of shapes and the relationships among points in a geometric plane. They connect graphic locations...

Lesson Planet

#### Graph It

Elementary and middle schoolers engage in a lesson of graphing in quadrant I of the coordinate plain. They use the graph to create shapes and symbols. While using a graphing calculator, they locate the points on the coordinate plane. In...

Lesson Planet

#### Four-Quadrant Grid

This is a nifty tool to keep on hand, especially when addressing CCSS.Math.Content.6.NS.6 standards. It is, simply, a Cartesian coordinate plane with all four quadrants. Give individuals one each, and then call out or write ordered pairs...

Lesson Planet

#### Treasure Hunt

In this treasure hunt worksheet, students fill in the blanks with the correct coordinates. As students fill in the coordinates, they trace their route on a treasure map.

Lesson Planet

#### Equations for Curves Passing through a Given Set of Points

Learner use three random locations on the coordinate system and simplify the expression and assign result to the variable loc. They substitute guesses for the center and radius of the circle in the equation for the center of a circle and...

Lesson Planet

#### Make a Classroom Map

Students map the items in their classroom to explain the importance of coordinate systems.

Lesson Planet

#### How Do Cartographers Find Points on a Map?

Ninth graders describe latitude and longitude and how they may be useful to find things on a map. In this cartography lesson students divide into groups and devise a coordinate system that can be used to communicate a position.

Lesson Planet

#### Math 222. Worksheet 8. Cartesian Coordinates

In this Cartesian coordinate worksheet, students eliminate cross-product terms by a rotation of the axes, graph polar equations, and find the equation for a tangent line. This two-page worksheet contains approximately 30 problems.

Lesson Planet

#### A slope or not a slope? That is the question.

Eighth graders investigate concepts related to Cartesian Coordinates. They use a creative game at the beginning of the lesson to identify quadrants by passing candy to one another. The rest of the lesson is using vocabulary and problem...

Lesson Planet

#### Introduction To Polar Coordinates

Students investigate the polar coordinate system and practice plotting using Cartesian Coordinates. They find the angle and the radius and plot them while comprehending the ordered pairs using the x and y axis. The lesson includes...

Lesson Planet

#### Navigation, Working With Coordinates

Middle schoolers view a polar view map and discuss ways of telling locations on the map. They view a copy of the map superimposed on a coordinate grid, then discuss ways of telling the locations. Students practice as a class and then...

Lesson Planet

#### Mapquest Distances

Young scholars locate items on a grid using the coordinate grid. They graph different distances using Mapquest maps. They compare the distances and work as a class to graph the different distances.
