Grade 5 Mathematics Module 6, Topic C: Drawing Figures in the Coordinate Plane


Content Source:

Type: Lesson/Unit Plan


In Module 6, Topic C, students draw figures in the coordinate plane by plotting points to create parallel, perpendicular, and intersecting lines. They reason about what points are needed to produce such lines and angles, and they investigate the resultant points and their relationships. In preparation for Topic D, students recall Grade 4 concepts such as angles on a line, angles at a point, and vertical angles—all produced by plotting points and drawing figures on the coordinate plane (5.G.1).  To conclude the topic, students draw symmetric figures using both angle size and distance from a given line of symmetry (5.G.2).

23 ) Use a pair of perpendicular number lines, called axes, to define a coordinate system with the intersection of the lines (the origin) arranged to coincide with the 0 on each line and a given point in the plane located by using an ordered pair of numbers, called its coordinates. Understand that the first number indicates how far to travel from the origin in the direction of one axis, and the second number indicates how far to travel in the direction of the second axis, with the convention that the names of the two axes and the coordinates correspond (e.g., x-axis and x-coordinate, y-axis and y-coordinate).
