# Introduction to the Coordinate Plane and Graphing Points

## About This Product

This 42 page PowerPoint on **Introduction to the Coordinate Plane and Graphing Points** is a great introduction for your 5th grade students to the coordinate plane and graphing points in the coordinate plane.

The lesson begins with the parts of the coordinate plane - horizontal or x-axis, vertical or y-axis and the origin. Students are next shown how to read the coordinates of a point in the coordinate plane. They are given several examples of points in the coordinate plane and asked to name its coordinates. They are then given several examples of a points and its coordinates and to graph the point in the coordinate plane.

The final slides are 10 review questions for students to answer about the lesson.

This PowerPoint on **Introduction to the Coordinate Plane and Graphing Points **can be edited to meet your student's needs. All answers are imbedded in the presentation.

This lesson corresponds to Common Core Standard 5.G.1 - *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).*
