What is a Coordinate Plane? - Definition, Quadrants & Example

1. What is a Coordinate Plane? - Definition, Quadrants & Example

In this lesson, you'll learn what a coordinate plane is and some coordinate plane terminology. You'll also see a few examples of coordinate planes in action. Then, you can test your new knowledge with a brief quiz.

Ordered Pairs on the Coordinate Plane

2. 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.

How to Use The Midpoint Formula

3. How to Use The Midpoint Formula

The formula for the midpoint of a line segment will tell you how to find the middle of any line segment on the x, y plane. Learn about this formula and see how it is used to find the midpoint of a line segment.

How to Find the Distance Between Two Points

4. 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.

How to Find the Distance Between a Point & a Line

5. How to Find the Distance Between a Point & a Line

Finding the distance from a point to a line is useful in many science and engineering applications. In this lesson, we calculate this distance using a formula, as well as with some fundamental concepts from geometry and algebra.

How to Find the Distance Between Parallel Lines

6. How to Find the Distance Between Parallel Lines

Parallel lines are very common features in architecture and construction. We see them in ladder rungs, railroad tracks and city streets. In this lesson, we'll use algebra and geometry to find the distance between parallel lines.

Solving Word Problems with Plotted Data on a Coordinate Plane

7. Solving Word Problems with Plotted Data on a Coordinate Plane

After watching this video lesson, you will be able to solve word problems that involve plotted points on a coordinate plane. Learn how to choose the right points that will answer your question.
