##### Description:

To understand the different parts of a coordinate plane. Being able to identify order pairs using the coordinate plane.

In this packet you will see examples on how to label a coordinate plane and how to plot points using your order pairs. Also there will be examples on how to find an order pair given the coordinate plane.

Terms Used in this Learning Packet:

Coordinate Plane: A horizontal number line called x-axis and a vertical line called y-axis with 4 quandrants.

Order Pair: On the coordinate plane , the pair of numbers giving the location of a point. Shown as ( x, y ).

Quadrant: Any quarter of the coordinate plane divided by the x and y axis.

- Quadrant I: is where the x and y variables are both positive

- Quadrant II: is where the x variable is negative and the y variable is positive

- Quadrant III: is where the x and y variables are both negative

- Quadrant IV: is where the x variable is positive and the y variable is negative

Origin: The point of intersection of the x and y axis on a coordinate plane. The order pair of the origin is ( 0, 0 ).

X-axis: Is the horizontal line and is used to locate the values of x in the order pair.

Y- axis: Is the vertical line and is used to locate the values of y in the order pair.
