Coordinates in the 1st Quadrant - Plotting & Finding Points
About This Product
This resource will enable your students practice plotting and reading coordinates in the first quadrant of a Cartesian plane where all the numbers are positive with a range of different graphic images leading up to points located on an x-y graph simply with letters.
For each set of graphics (leaves, astronaut icons, geometric shapes, and letters) there are two separate activities:
Finding the coordinates of points on an x-y Grid in the 1st Quadrant
Given set of coordinates, locate their position on an x-y Grid in 1st Quadrant
In addition, for a final set of worksheets, again there are the two activities, but this time the coordinates or points drawn on the axis form geometric shapes. This provides a good starting point for further questioning or investigation that could include:
- naming the shapes
- drawing lines of symmetry and labeling coordinates on the line
- finding the coordinate of the centre of each shape
- apply transformations and note the new coordinates ..........
How many Worksheets in total ?
Unlimited, because at the click of a button all the numbers or the location of the objects on the grid are randomized providing you with a new set of questions for classwork, homework, revision, assessments etc.
Also as these worksheets require no preparation they are ideal worksheets to leave for a substitute teacher if needed.
You will also have 2 sets of blank worksheets so that your students can create their own worksheets, or use them for the investigations suggested above
Answers can be found on the second page of every worksheet, automatically generated when you create a new worksheet.
These resources are PDF documents and work with the official Adobe Acrobat Reader on Windows or Mac computers with the randomising buttons also working via a touchscreen (PC or Mac)or on an Interactive Whiteboard.
Common Core Standards - 5th Grade
Use a pair of perpendicular number lines, called axes, to define a coordinate system, with the intersection of the lines (the origin) arranged to coincide with the 0 on each line and a given point in the plane located by using an ordered pair of numbers, called its coordinates. Understand that the first number indicates how far to travel from the origin in the direction of one axis, and the second number indicates how far to travel in the direction of the second axis, with the convention that the names of the two axes and the coordinates correspond (e.g., 𝘹-axis and 𝘹-coordinate, 𝘺-axis and 𝘺-coordinate).
