Intro to the Coordinate Plane and its 4 Quadrants

Students will define and then in their own words explain the following terms: x and y axis, coordinate plane, quadrant, origin, ordered pair

Students will apply their definitions as they create and label their coordinate plane.

Students will demonstrate their knowledge on a homework assignment due the next day.  The assignment is a puzzle with a coordinate plane.  In each quadrant, letters are plotted and students solve the puzzle by correctly matching the letter to its ordered pair.
