Lesson Plan: Coordinate Planes Mathematics

This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to define the different types of coordinate planes and the coordinates of a point and place points on the plane.


Students will be able to

  • understand the definition of a coordinate plane in its most general form,
  • understand the different types of coordinate planes (oblique, orthogonal, and orthonormal),
  • define the coordinates of a point on a coordinate plane and place the point on this coordinate plane,
  • configure a coordinate plane given its definition and find the coordinates of points according to this configuration.


Students should already be familiar with

  • number lines,
  • reading point coordinates in an orthonormal coordinate plane,
  • 2D shapes and their properties.


Students will not cover

  • 3D coordinate system.
