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.
