Instructor Overview

Students draw a figure on the coordinate plane that matches a written description.

Key Concepts

  • Ordered pairs name locations on the coordinate plane. The first coordinate tells how many units to go left or right of the origin (0,0) along the x-axis. The second coordinate tells how many units to go up or down from the origin along the y-axis.

Goals and Learning Objectives

  • Draw a figure that matches a description of a figure on the coordinate plane.
  • Give coordinates of points on the coordinate plane.
  • Write descriptions of figures on the coordinate plane.
