Name the coordinates of the points on the graph below.
Introduction to Cartesian Coordinate System.
Locating Points on the Coordinate Plane.
The colored points on the coordinate plane are target points for you to locate. Follow the instructions below..
(1.) What do you notice about the locations and ordered pairs of B, C, and D?
(2.) How are they different from those for point A?
(3.) Plot a point at (-2, 5). Label it E. Plot another point at (3, -4.5). Label it F.
The coordinate plane is divided into four quadrants, I, II, III, and IV, as shown here below.
The following are points on the coordiante plane; G = (5, 2), H = (-1, -5), and I = (7, -4).
Locate a Point on the Coordinate axes.
In the applet below is an image of an archery target on a coordinate plane . The scores for landing an arrow in the colored regions are:
Name the coordinates for a possible landing point to score:
Type the coordinates for each point in a separate line, using parentheses. (Replace the question marks for the coordinates of each point.)
See how quickly you can find five target coordinates by dragging the red point to its target location. As soon as you locate a point correctly, the next point to locate pops up immediately. It is a timed exercise. Try to beat your own record!
(1.) Write the coordinates of each point.
(2.) Graph these points in the coordinate plane: (-2, 3), (2, 3), (-2, -3), (2, -3).
