#### Transcript of Coordinate Plane: Graphing Ordered Pairs

Quadrants

The points to the right and above the origin represent positive coordinates.

The points to the left and below the origin represent negative coordinates.

Terms to know:

Ordered Pairs

A set of two numbers arranged in a particular order. Written as (x,y), in which the x is the horizontal coordinate and y is the vertical coordinate.

Plot an Ordered Pair

To plot an ordered pair, you must start at the origin.

**Coordinate Plane: Graphing Ordered Pairs**

Coordinate plane: The plane determined by a horizontal line (X-Axis) and vertical line (Y-Axis), intersecting at a point call the origin.
