About This Chapter
4th Grade Math: The Coordinate Graph - Chapter Summary
Working with coordinate graphs can be tricky at first, but the video lessons in this chapter focus on presenting the information in a way 4th graders can grasp. The short, spunky videos help reinforce concepts like identifying parts of a graph, plotting points and measuring distances between points. The lesson quizzes are multiple-choice and can be used to evaluate your students' comprehension. The chapter exam is also a useful tool to see how well they've grasped the material.
Chapter Lessons and Objectives
|What is a Number Line?||Students learn about number lines and how to plot points on them.|
|What are the Different Parts of a Graph?||Instructors show how to identify the parts of a graph.|
|Plotting Points on the Coordinate Plane||This lesson builds on the previous lessons as students learn to plot points on the coordinate plane.|
|Ordered Pairs on the Coordinate Plane||Students examine the meaning of an ordered pair and how they apply to the coordinate plane.|
|Measuring the Distance Between Two Points||Students learn ways to measure the distance between points on a coordinate plane.|
1. What Is a Number Line?
A number line is a visual representation of all real numbers. In this lesson, we'll learn how to identify points on a number line. We'll also practice addition and subtraction, letting the number line do all the hard work.
2. What Are the Different Parts of a Graph?
Being able to read a graph isn't just vital for an algebra class. Graphs and charts are used everywhere! We'll take a crash course on the basic x/y plane used in algebra and the fundamental vocab you need.
3. Plotting Points on the Coordinate Plane
If you'll be working with a graph, otherwise known as the coordinate plane, it's essential to understand how it works. This includes learning the parts of a graph, identifying points and plotting points.
