Coordinate Pairs Flippables (Yes, Flippables

Coordinate Pairs Four Quadrant Flippable- Ready to introduce your students to all four quadrants of a graph? Interactive Flippable with practice components to identify axis, origin and a point in each of the 4 quadrants.


Cartesian Grid: is a three dimensional grid system. When used the grid gives the user a different perspective as they move. For this reason, Sutherland used a cartesian grid in his creation the head-mounted display.

The distance formula in rectangular (Cartesian) coordinates is the Pythagorean Theorem in disguise. A lot of my students like this explanation. It helps build off of knowledge that they already have from geometry.


This FREE math center game has 12 diffent task cards over 4 levels and full solutions provided for each card. Students need to identify that the points on a cartesian plane are represented by what is called an ordered pair or coordinates as ( X value, Y value ) Level 1 - Over 1 Quadrant Up to 10 on X and Y axis Level 2 - Over 1 Quadrant Up to 15 on X and Y axis Level 3 - Over 4 Quadrants from -5 to 5 on X and Y axis Level 4 - Over 4 Quadrants from -8 to 8 on X and Y axis This freebie is…


Ive seen a few variations of using the famous game Battleship in math class.  Who among us hasnt used it (or at least the concept) when reinforcing graphing coordinate pairs? Taking it in a slightly more advanced direction, lets make a 4 quadrant Battleship grid.  And lets require kids to write equations in slope-intercept form, graph them, and develop a strategy for this process. (Putting equations in point-slope would be a great substitute if you want one.) P1
