Lesson Plan: The Coordinate Plane: Four Quadrants Mathematics

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 any of the four quadrants and locate a point given its coordinates.

Objectives

Students will be able to

  • understand the elements of the coordinate grid and that there are four distinct quadrants in the coordinate plane,
  • identify the coordinates of a point in any of the four quadrants,
  • plot the coordinates of a point in any of the four quadrants,
  • plot vertices of shapes and find the coordinates of a missing vertex of a shape.

Prerequisites

Students should already be familiar with

  • labeling and plotting coordinates in the first quadrant.

Exclusions

Students will not cover

  • coordinates in three-dimensions,
  • the calculation of distances between two points.
