1
2-4: THE COORDINATE PLANE

2
2-4: The Coordinate Plane C OORDINATE P LANE : A grid used to represent placement in two dimensions (x and y). Also called a C ARTESIAN P LANE. Vertical number line is called the y-axis Horizontal number line is called the x-axis The point of intersection of the two axis is called the origin

3
2-4: The Coordinate Plane The Coordinate plane is broken up into four quadrants. They start in the upper- right and count counter-clockwise. Quad 1Quad 2 Quad 4 Quad 3

4
2-4: The Coordinate Plane O RDERED P AIR : A point on the coordinate plane, consisting of an x-coordinate and a y-coordinate.

5
2-4: The Coordinate Plane The figure below shows the graph of the ordered pair (4, 3). The first part, 4, is called the x-coordinate. It tells how many points to the left or right the point lies. (4, 3)

6
2-4: The Coordinate Plane The second part, 3, is called the y-coordinate. It tells how many points up or down the point lies. (4, 3)

7
2-4: The Coordinate Plane Example: Graph point A at (2, -3) Identify the coordinates at B and C. A (2,-3) B C B is at (-2, 5); C is at (0, -2)

8
2-4: The Coordinate Plane Horizontal and vertical lines have special characteristics. If a vertical line passes through (3, 4), then it contains all the points where x = 3. If a horizontal line passes through (-4, -2), then it contains all the points where y = -2. T HEOREM 2-4: If a and b are real numbers, a vertical line contains all points (x, y) such that x = a, and a horizontal line contains all points (x, y) such that y = b.

2-4: The Coordinate Plane T HEOREM 2-4: If a and b are real numbers, a vertical line contains all points (x, y) such that x = a, and a horizontal line contains all points (x, y) such that y = b. What??? Vertical lines are always written as x = # Horizontal lines are always written as y = # How am I supposed to remember that? Take a v (for vertical), and turn it upside-down Take a h (for horizontal), and turn it upside down vh
