Locating Points - Creating a Visual Coordinate Map Of Your School

Eighth graders explore graphing on a coordinate plane. In teams of three, 8th graders measure the hallways of the school and take digital pictures of key points such as intersections, the office, cafeteria and the math classroom. Using the data collected, and a graphing calculator, they plot points of the key intersections and sites. Next, students use spreadsheet technology to display the graph and paste pictures of the key points at the proper location.
