Ch 26: MTTC Math (Secondary): The Coordinate Graph & Graph Symmetry

About This Chapter

Use this chapter's online video lessons to build upon your prior knowledge of coordinate graphs and graph symmetry. Employ your refreshed knowledge when you answer related questions on the MTTC Math (Secondary) examination.

MTTC Math (Secondary): The Coordinate Graph and Graph Symmetry - Chapter Summary

The video lessons in this chapter will remind you of how to identify the x- and y-axis of a graph, understand the applications of the Cartesian coordinate plane and recognize points on the number line. Revisit these and several other topics in preparation for passing the MTTC Math (Secondary) examination. Watching the video lessons might help you to:

  • Define the number line and use it to solve subtraction and addition problems
  • Describe a graph's parts, including the x- and y-coordinates
  • Plot points on a graph
  • Working with ordered pairs and determining the distance between points on a plane
  • Identify symmetry algebraically, numerically and graphically about the origin and x- and y-axis

Through illustrations, conversational instruction and step-by-step examples, the experienced instructors aim to help you recall important elements of coordinate graphs and graph symmetry. The online lessons are self-paced for your convenience. Written transcripts with key terms are included in the chapter. In addition to completing the brief quizzes that follow every lesson, you should also take the chapter examination.

MTTC Math (Secondary): The Coordinate Graph and Graph Symmetry Objectives

Express your grasp of coordinate graphs and graph symmetry when you sit for the 'Patterns, Algebraic Relationships and Functions' section of the MTTC Math (Secondary) examination. The second of four sections of the test, it equals 28% of the whole score. The lessons you learn from this chapter's videos and through its quizzes could enhance your performance on this portion of the examination.

You'll have the option of taking the examination on paper or via computer. If you take the paper-based version, you'll have up to four hours and 30 minutes to complete the examination. Choosing the computer-administered test means that you will be allowed two hours and 30 minutes to finish. Both versions of the examination consist of 80 multiple-choice questions.

What Is a Number Line?

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.

What Are the Different Parts of a Graph?

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.

Plotting Points on the Coordinate Plane

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.

Ordered Pairs on the Coordinate Plane

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.

How to Find the Distance Between Two 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.

Recognizing Symmetry Graphically, Algebraically, and Numerically About the X-axis and Y-axis

6. Recognizing Symmetry Graphically, Algebraically, and Numerically About the X-axis and Y-axis

When you fold a piece of paper exactly in half, you are creating symmetry. Symmetry is found in many areas of mathematics. In this lesson, learn to recognize symmetry graphically, algebraically, and numerically about the x- and y- axes.

Recognizing Symmetry Graphically, Algebraically & Numerically About the Origin

7. Recognizing Symmetry Graphically, Algebraically & Numerically About the Origin

If you look at flowers and fruits, you'll see that many of these items in nature are symmetrical. In this lesson, learn about symmetry about the origin of a graph. When you are finished, test your knowledge with a short quiz!
