6th Grade Math Coordinate Plane Worksheets

A coordinate plane is a two-dimensional plane formed by the intersection of two lines called the axis. 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. The plane is called two-dimensional because anywhere on this plane where you can put your finger, the location of that point will need two things– its distance on the x-axis and its distance on the y-axis. Solving Coordinate Plane Worksheet is excellent for students to understand where numbers lie in the coordinate plane.

Teaching the Coordinate Plane easily.

• The first quadrant (+, +) known as the positive coordinates quadrant, is represented by the Roman numeral I.

• The second quadrant (-, +) is represented by the Roman numeral II.

• The third quadrant (-, -) is represented by the Roman numeral III.

• The fourth quadrant (+, -) is represented by the Roman numeral IV.

You are at (−4, 3). Move  5 units right and 2 units up. Write the coordinates of the point where you reach.

Moving 5 units to the right will reach −4 + 5 = 1 on the x-axis.

Moving 2 units up will reach 3 + 2 = 5 on the y-axis.

So, the coordinates of the point where we reached is (1, 5).

Why Should you use coordinate plane worksheets for your students?

• Students will learn and understand to plot points and lines on the graph.
• It will improve their understanding to describe algebraic relationships in a visual sense and also helps us create and interpret algebraic concepts.
