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.

As a middle school teacher and coach, I have very little spare time. This year, I was asked to teach 2 subjects (one of which I have never taught). Lesson Planet has helped me become more prepared without having to spend hours on the internet searching for ideas. Almost everything I need can now be found with one click of the mouse!
