Instructional Ideas

  • Review the x-axis and y-axis in relation to ordered pairs
  • Point out that the interval of each axis counts by 2s
  • Provide graph paper for individuals to create a larger, clearer version of the picture
Classroom Considerations

  • To avoid any confusion, suggest connecting the points as they are plotted in order
  • Worksheet requires basic experience in plotting points in all four quadrants of a Cartesian coordinate system
Pros

  • Comes with an answer key
  • Brings in a fun way to graph ordered pairs on a coordinate system
Cons

  • The intervals of the Cartesian coordinate system are crammed in a small space making it tricky to read the numbers
