About This Chapter
The Coordinate Graph - Chapter Summary
Students studying math at the third to fifth grade level can use the entertaining videos in this chapter to supplement their understanding of coordinate graphs, including learning how coordinate graphs can be read as maps, measuring distances between two points and plotting decimals and negative numbers. At the end of every lesson, the student can take a quiz to test their understanding, and an end-of-chapter test helps review key information about coordinate graphs.

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. How to Plot Coordinate Graphs with Decimals & Negative Numbers
What is a coordinate graph? What is the origin? What are coordinates? All of these questions and more will be answered in this lesson about plotting decimals and negative numbers.
5. Reading Coordinate Graphs as Maps & Measuring Relative Coordinates
Learn how to read and create points on a graph as if you were looking at a map. Discover how to travel up, down, left and right on the graph! Learn how to read number pairs on the graph and find points, too!
