In this lesson on coordinates, students learn how to plot points on the Cartesian coordinate plane and how to name those points. They begin by learning about ordered pairs, with the first coordinate being the domain or independent variable and the second coordinate being the range or dependent variable. Students then learn about the four quadrants and how to move left, right, up, and down on the plane. The lesson ends with a real-world application of coordinates on a map.
