### About This Chapter

## 6th-8th Grade Math: The Coordinate Graph - Chapter Summary

Watch the video lessons in this chapter to educate your elementary and middle school students about graphing points on the coordinate plane. Easy-to-follow and entertaining videos describe the different elements of a graph, ordered pairs, and plot points. What's more, these lessons will show your students how to measure distance on graphs. You'll be able to use video tags to jump around to important topics as you view these lessons with your elementary and middle school students. Additionally, you can find out how much your students have retained through using the available lesson quizzes or chapter exams.

## Chapter Lessons and Objectives

Lesson | Objectives |
---|---|

What is a Number Line? | Define a number line and plot points on that line. |

What Are the Different Parts of a Graph? | Examine the different elements on a graph and label all parts. |

Plotting Points on the Coordinate Plane | Describe the coordinate plane and then plot points in that area. |

Ordered Pairs on the Coordinate Plane | Establish an ordered pair, and then graph different ordered pairs onto the coordinate plane. |

How to Find the Distance Between Two Points | Identify the steps for measuring 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.

### 4. Ordered Pairs on the Coordinate Plane

In this video lesson, you will see how points are plotted on the coordinate plane. Learn the proper way to identify points on the coordinate plane and how to read the points.

### 5. How to Find the Distance Between Two Points

After watching this video lesson, you will be able to find the distance between any two points on the coordinate plane. Learn what information you and how to plug them in to your formula.
