Transcript of Coordinate Plane
The Coordinate Plane
What does it look like and why do we need it?
Pilots & Navigators
Any job that navigates anywhere uses a coordinate plane to help it find their location and distance to their destination.
An engineer needs the coordinate plane to calculate where a machine or structure needs to be reinforced.
X & Y Axis
X-Axis: The horizontal (left to right) axis of the graph.
Y-Axis: The vertical (up and down) axis of the graph.
Who uses Coordinate Planes/Grids?
Can you name jobs that you think uses this area of math?
Let's Look, Listen & Learn :)
Economists and accountants use business models, they use graphs to show past, present, and future data.
The Coordinate Plane/Grid:
A plane (2D surface) containing
2 perpendicular axes (x and y) intersecting at a point called the origin (0,0).
The Origin is the point of intersection of the x and y axis on a coordinate plane.
Quadrants - Any quarter of a plane divided by an x and y axis.
There are 4 quadrants on a coordinate plane.
A pair of numbers where order is important, often
used to indicate a point on a coordinate plane/grid.
The first # is the horizontal position, and the second # is the vertical position. (x,y)
