Plotting points on a coordinate plane grade 5 activity

Grab the best techniques necessary for plotting points and graph lines on coordinate planes with these free printable coordinate graphing worksheets for grade 5. Given that these coordinate planes are visual representations, our problem solving with coordinate plane worksheets have been designed to help kids proficiently learn how to represent real world and mathematical problems by plotting points on a coordinate plane grade 5 activity.

Important facts about coordinate plane for grade 5

As we can recall that algebraic relationships are often represented in tables and graphs, this visual sense of coordinate graphing is a great resource that will permit kids to confidently describe algebraic relationships, as well as create and interpret algebraic concepts.

How to easily master basic elements of a coordinate plane

Hey kiddos, to be fully acquainted on how to graph and name points in a coordinate plane, you need to know how to easily master basic elements or parts of a coordinate plane.

 

This however is no course for alarm, because our fun free printable coordinate graphing worksheets for grade 5 have been practically formulated basing its exercises on all the major elements of coordinate graphs, particularly;

 

  • The x-axis: this is the horizontal line or line running from up to down on a coordinate graph.
  • The y-axis: this is the vertical line or line running from left to right on a coordinate graph.

N.B: The order in which you write x- and y-coordinates is very important.

The x-coordinate MUST always come first, before the y-coordinate.

For instance, the ordered pair (3, 4) is totally different from (4, 3). In fact they refer to two different points.

 

  • The origin: this is the point (0, 0), i.e. where the x-axis and the y-axis intersect.
  • Quadrants: these are the four sections of the coordinate plane. The top right section is the first (I) quadrant. Then moving in a counter-clockwise direction is the second (II), third (III) and fourth (IV) quadrants.

N.B: The order in which you write x- and y-coordinates is very important.

 

The x-coordinate MUST always come first, before the y-coordinate.

For instance, the ordered pair (3, 4) is totally different from (4, 3). In fact they refer to two different points.

 

Following the above basic elements, our exercises have been themed under:

describe the coordinate plane; objects on a coordinate plane, graph points on a coordinate plane, graph points from a table; coordinate planes as maps; follow directions on a coordinate plane; objects on a coordinate plane-all four quadrants; and quadrants.
