20. Graph points in the first quadrant of the coordinate plane, and interpret coordinate values of points to represent real-world and mathematical problems.
[MA2019] (6) 11 :
11. Find the position of pairs of integers and other rational numbers on the coordinate plane.

a. Identify quadrant locations of ordered pairs on the coordinate plane based on the signs of the x and y coordinates.

b. Identify (a,b) and (a,-b) as reflections across the x-axis.

c. Identify (a,b) and (-a,b) as reflections across the y-axis.

d. Solve real-world and mathematical problems by graphing points in all four quadrants of the coordinate plane, including finding distances between points with the same first or second coordinate.
Subject: Mathematics (5 - 6)
Title: Treasure Map Graphing

Students lead a quest for buried treasure in this geometry game. Students must follow clues to identify x- and y-coordinates on a treasure map, to lead them around the island before landing on the pirate booty. Students will also graph points on the coordinate plane.  

This activity results from the ALEX Resource Gap Project.
