Lesson Plan: The Coordinate Plane: Four Quadrants Mathematics • 6th 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 any of the four quadrants and locate a point given its coordinates.

Objectives

Students will be able to

  • write an ordered pair to describe the location of points in any quadrant of the coordinate plane,
  • plot points given an ordered pair of coordinates,
  • plot vertices of shapes and find the coordinates of a missing vertex of a shape,
  • describe how the sign of the coordinate changes when moving between quadrants.

Prerequisites

Students should already be familiar with

  • plotting and reading points in the first quadrant,
  • negative numbers on number lines.

Exclusions

Students will not cover

  • finding distances on the coordinate plane.
