Subject: Mathematics (6)
Title: Practice Graphing on the Coordinate Plane
Description:

In this learning activity from Geogebra, students will practice graphing ordered pairs. Students will complete three separate tasks: Task 1: Practicing plotting ordered pairs, Task 2: Plotting ordered pairs, and Task 3: Creating ordered pairs. Each task will have instructions to help the students to complete the lesson.

Subject: Mathematics (6)
Title: Graphing on the Coordinate Plane
Description:

In this learning activity, students will watch a video Graphing on the Coordinate Plane from Simplify the Middle. Students will learn how to graph points as well as how to identify a point that has already been graphed. After watching the video, students will complete an exit ticket to demonstrate their understanding.

Subject: Mathematics (6)
Title: Introducing the Four Quadrants of the Coordinate Plane
Description:

In this learning activity, students will watch a video to introduce them to the 4 quadrants of the coordinate plane. Students will then complete a 3-2-1 Exit Ticket listing 3 new ideas they learned about coordinate planes, 2 questions they have from the activity, and 1 statement that summarizes the learning goal.

Subject: Mathematics (6)
Title: Getting to Know the Cartesian Plane
Description:

In this learning activity from Geogebra, students will learn how to identify the parts of the Cartesian plane and how to determine the signs of the coordinates of points on it. Then the students will use an applet to test their understanding of the rules governing the signs of the coordinates of points on the Cartesian plane.

Subject: Mathematics (6)
Description:

In this learning activity from MathsLinks, students will complete a treasure-hunt activity centered on locating points on the number plane and identifying which quadrant they are in or points on the axes.

Subject: Mathematics (6 - 8), Mathematics (8)
Title: Graphville Shopping Excursion
Description:

Students will create a map of a shopping excursion by solving systems of linear equations through graphing, substitution, or elimination. Students will then be able to determine the distance traveled through the mall using Pythagorean Theorem. Students will utilize previous grade level standards as a spiral review such as plotting coordinate pairs and using those pairs to find the distance between two points.

This activity is a result of the ALEX Resource Development Summit.

Subject: Mathematics (5 - 6)
Title: Treasure Map Graphing
Description:

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.
