1. Topic-
Coordinate Grid Art
2. Content-
Coordinate plane: formed when two number lines intersect at right angles

x-axis:the line on a graph that runs horizontally through zero

y-axis: the line on a graph that runs vertically through zero

ordered pair: Two numbers written in a certain order, used to show position on a graph. The x value is first and the y value is second.

point: a dot that specifies an exact location

origin: the point where two axes meet (0,0)
3. Goals: Aims/Outcomes-
To identify location of points on a two-dimensional coordinate grid.
4. Objectives-
Given coordinate pairs, students will plot points on a coordinate plane to create a picture, with 100% accuracy.
5. Materials and Aids-
Coordinate Grid Art Worksheet
SmartBoard Notebook "Coordinate Grid Art"
6. Procedures/Methods-

A. Introduction-

I will tell students that they will be drawing pictures in Math class today.

B. Development-

1.Go over vocabulary.
2.Draw a point on the coordinate plane.
3.State the ordered pair.
4.Plot other points and ask students to state ordered pairs.
5.Remind students to find the number on the x-axis first, then find the number on the y-axis.

C. Practice-

1.Students take turns at the SmartBoard drawing geometric shapes.
2.Students will state the ordered pair of each point plotted.

D. Independent Practice-

1.Students will be given grid paper and a list of coordinate pairs.
2.They will plot the points on the grid to create a picture of a monkey's face.

E. Accommodations (Differentiated Instruction)-

Students will create the outline only of the monkey's face.

F. Checking for understanding-

Students will share their pictures with the class. I will look at each student's picture to make sure the ordered pairs were plotted correctly.

G. Closure-

Students will be asked to state the meaning of the learned vocabulary words.
7. Evaluation-
Homework: Students will be given blank grid paper and instructed to create three geometric shapes and list the ordered pairs.
