1
The Cartesian PLane Lets start graphing!

2
Introduction to x-y plane You learned about the basic (counting) number line back in elementary school: Later on, you were introduced to zero and negatives, which completed the number line:negatives

3
Descartes' breakthrough was in taking a second number line, standing it up on its end, and crossing the first number line at zero:

4
Ordered Pairs An 'ordered pair' is simply two numbers in a certain order. For example, the numbers '2' and '3' can form two ordered pairs: 2, 3 and 3, 2 In mathematics, we use two numbers to accurately locate a position on a rectangular grid, like this:

5
Coordinate system On a graph grid, the point (0,0) is called the ' origin ' The first coordinate of a plotted point is called the ' x ' coordinate The second coordinate of a plotted point is called the ' y ' coordinate origin X coordinate y coordinate

6
Lets Graph (2, 4) (-4, 3) (-5, -4) (3, -3) (2, 4) (-4, 3) (-5, -4) (3, -3)

7
Your turn: which quadrant will the point lie? (2, -3) (-2, -1) (5, -5) (-2, 1) (1, 5)
