Lesson Plan: Plotting Ordered Pairs on a Four Quadrant Grid - Grade Five - Grade 05
Summary:In this lesson, students label and represent ordered pairs on a four-quadrant grid. Students demonstrate prior knowledge of plotting ordered pairs in the first quadrant. Introduction to the four-quadrant grid begins with students creating and discussing number lines that include negative numbers. Practice in creating the axes on a coordinate grid is a component of the lesson. Students discuss the importance of direction in plotting ordered pairs and explain how to plot ordered pairs.
