Do your M**iddle School** students need help strengthening their skills graphing ordered pairs in all **4 Quadrants**? Check out this engaging llama activity that is on the FUN side! Makes a great **Emergency Sub Folder** addition as well.

It's a great resource to keep in your emergency sub folder!

The ordered pairs in this activity are in all four quadrants and are all integers/no decimals (except for the optional challenge add-on).

Please view the preview to view the completed picture.

**What's Included**

•Blank Coordinate Grid (with & without numbers)

•2 Sets of Ordered Pairs to be graphed (Easy & Hard) - Both pairs make the same picture but the hard version has the pieces scrambled so the picture isn't revealed until the end.

•Answer Key

## FAQs

Step 1: Identify the point in question, (x,y). Step 2: Determine its x-coordinate, which will be the horizontal distance from the origin. Step 3: Determine its y-coordinate, which will be the vertical distance from the origin. Step 4: Plot or label the point (depending on what the question is asking).

How to set up a coordinate plane? ›
**
First, we draw two number lines perpendicular to one another, intersecting at the point 0 on both lines. Then, we simply label the horizontal number line as the x-axis and label the vertical number line as the y-axis. There we have it!

**
What are the points on a coordinate plane? ›
**
A point in a coordinate plane is **named by its ordered pair of the form of (x, y)**. The first number corresponds to the x-coordinates and the second to the y-coordinate. Exactly one ordered pair of numbers names a given point in the plane.

**
What is an example of a coordinate point? ›
**
Example 1: **The point where both the axes intersect is known as the origin**. Coordinates of the origin are written as O(0, 0). Example 2: In the figure below, the coordinates of point A are (3,4). It means that the point is 3 units along the x-axis and 4 units up.

**
What is a coordinate plane in 6th grade? ›
**
A coordinate plane is **a two-dimensional plane formed by the intersection of two number lines**. One of these number lines is a horizontal number line called the x-axis and the other number line is a vertical number line called the y-axis.

**
How to plot points on a graph with an equation? ›
**
To graph a linear equation by plotting points, you need to **find three points whose coordinates are solutions to the equation**. You can use the x- and y- intercepts as two of your three points. Find the intercepts, and then find a third point to ensure accuracy. Make sure the points line up—then draw the line.

**
What are coordinates for dummies? ›
**
**The two axes intersect at the origin (0, 0).** **Points are located within the coordinate plane with pairs of coordinates called ordered pairs—like (8, 6) or (–10, 3)**. The first number, the x-coordinate, tells you how far you go right or left; the second number, the y-coordinate, tells you how far you go up or down.

**
How to solve for coordinates? ›
**
Identify which quadrant of the graph contains an ordered pair or a point. Measure the distance between the point and the x-axis. Similarly, to obtain the coordinate value, **measure the point's distance from the y-axis**. There, you will be getting the coordinates of the point.

**
What is an ordered pair in math? ›
**
An ordered pair in math is **a simplified way of writing out two variable values**. It is two numbers separated by a comma within parenthesis. The first number represents the x-value, and the second number represents the y-value.

**
How do you work out the coordinate of a point? ›
**
Go to the coordinate graph with the lines X'OX (in x-axis), Y'OY (in y-axis). Identify which quadrant of the graph contains an ordered pair or a point. Measure the distance between the point and the x-axis. Similarly, to obtain the coordinate value, measure the point's distance from the y-axis.

**The x coordinate always comes first, followed by the y coordinate**. That is why (3, 4) is not the same as (4, 3). (3, 4) refers to a point three units to the right of zero and four units above zero. (4, 3) refers to a point four units to the right of zero and three units above zero.
