Lesson Plan: The Coordinate Plane: First Quadrant Mathematics • 5th Grade

This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to find the 𝑥- and 𝑦-coordinates of a point in the first quadrant and locate a point given its coordinates.


Students will be able to

  • understand that a coordinate grid is used to describe position,
  • identify the 𝑥- and 𝑦-axes of a coordinate grid,
  • write an ordered pair to describe the location of points on a coordinate plane,
  • plot points given an ordered pair of coordinates,
  • solve problems by plotting points and drawing shapes.


Students should already be familiar with

  • whole numbers on a number line.


Students will not cover

  • plotting coordinates outside the first quadrant.
