Students are asked to graph points given their coordinates and describe the coordinates of graphed points when the axes have different scales.

Students are asked to graph points given their coordinates and describe the coordinates of graphed points.

Students are asked to determine in what quadrant or on which axis, points described algebraically, are located.

Students are asked to compare the graphs of coordinates that are opposite in sign on a number line and in the coordinate plane.

## Student Resources

## Educational Game

In this activity, students enter coordinates to make a path to get to a target destination while avoiding mines. This activity allows students to explore Cartesian coordinates and the Cartesian coordinate plane. This activity includes supplemental materials, including background information about the topics covered, a description of how to use the application, and exploration questions for use with the java applet.

## Tutorials

Students will plot an ordered pair on the x (horizontal) axis and y (vertical) axis of the coordinate plane.

Type: Tutorial

This video contains examples of plotting coordinate pairs and identifying their quadrant.

Type: Tutorial

Students will learn how to identify the four quadrants in the coordinate plane.

Type: Tutorial

The Cartesian Coordinate system, formed from the Cartesian product of the real number line with itself, allows algebraic equations to be visualized as geometric shapes in two or three dimensions. While this tutorial includes the basis of Coordinate system, it also includes ideas beyond fifth grade standards. Most likely only advanced fifth graders would find the video engaging.
