Unit 3, Lesson 17# Drawing the Coordinate Plane and Points on the Plane

EngageNY 45 min(s)

Students draw a coordinate plane on graph paper in two steps: 1. Draw and label the horizontal and vertical axes; 2. Mark the number scale on each axis. Given some points as ordered pairs, students make reasonable choices for scales on both axes and locate and label the points on graph paper. Instruct students to draw all necessary components of the coordinate plane on the blank grid provided below, placing the origin at the center of the grid and letting each grid line represent 1 unit.
