Lesson Summary:

This video on plotting points teaches viewers how to graph points on a coordinate plane. The instructor demonstrates how to plot points with positive and negative x and y coordinates, as well as points with a coordinate of zero. The video also emphasizes the importance of returning to the origin when plotting multiple points. This lesson is essential for anyone who wants to graph lines on a coordinate plane.

Lesson Description:

A quick video on graph just points on the coordinate grid. (You can't graph lines until you can graph points!)

    This lesson will show you a basic introduction to plotting points on the coordinate plane. The concept of plotting points and how to know where to put the point based on the x-coordinate and y-coordinate is explained.
