Instructional Ideas

  • Implement these worksheets as in-class or homework assignments during a pre-algebra unit on the coordinate plane
  • Extend the activity by having students create descriptions of their own original number patterns, similar to those included on the worksheets
Classroom Considerations

  • Note that these exercises only involve plotting ordered pairs in the first quadrant, making them most appropriate for students just learning about the coordinate plane
Pros

  • Includes ten graphing worksheets, each with five different problems
  • Answer keys are included
  • An example problem is provided on each worksheet that demonstrates how to complete the exercises
Cons

  • None
