Student Outcomes

  • Students extend their understanding of the coordinate plane to include all four quadrants, and recognize that the axes (identified as the -axis and -axis) of the coordinate plane divide the plane into four regions called quadrants (that are labeled from first to fourth and are denoted by Roman Numerals).
  • Students identify the origin, and locate points other than the origin, which lie on an axis.
  • Students locate points in the coordinate plane that correspond to given ordered pairs of integers and other rational numbers.
