(Lesson seeds are ideas for the domain/cluster/standard that can be used to build a lesson.
An effective lesson plan requires more components than presented in a lesson seed.)
Domain: Geometry
Cluster: Graph points on the coordinate plane to solve real-world and mathematical problems.
Standard(s): 5.G.A.1 Use a pair of perpendicular number lines, called axes, to define a coordinate system, with the intersection of
the lines (the origin) arranged to coincide with the 0 on each line and a given point in the plane located by
using an ordered pair of numbers, called its coordinates. Understand that the first number indicates how far to
travel from the origin in the direction of one axis, and the second number indicates how far to travel in the
direction of the second axis, with the convention that the names of the two axes and the coordinates
correspond (e.g., x-axis and x-coordinate, y-axis and y-coordinate).
Purpose/Big Idea:
A pair of perpendicular number lines, called axes, to define a coordinate system, with the intersection of the lines (the origin)
arranged to coincide with the 0 on each line
A given point in the plane located by using an ordered pair of numbers, called its coordinates and the understanding that the
first number indicates how far to travel from the origin in the direction of the x-axis, and the second number indicates how far
to travel in the direction of the y-axis
Materials:
2 Demonstration Number lines (-10 to 10)
10 x 10 grid paper
Graph paper
Activity:
Modeling with two number lines (-10 to 10), place the number lines perpendicular on the board, with the number lines
intersecting at 0.
On their graph paper have the students draw perpendicular number lines that intersect at zero. Introduce this two-dimensional
number line where the vertical line is called the y-axis and the horizontal is called the x-axis as a coordinate plane. The axes
divide the plane into four quadrants. Have students label their graph as you explain the x and y axis and the four quadrants.
Put a point on your coordinate plane and give it a name. Have the students give suggestion about how it was named. Try
several points until the students understand how to name a point. Give the students the formal name for a point and have them
