Coordinate plane: formed when two number lines intersect at right
angles
xaxis:the line on a graph that runs horizontally through zero
yaxis: 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 twodimensional 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 xaxis first, then find
the number on the yaxis.



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.
