Big Ideas: Real life situations with two sets of related data can be represented through graphs on a coordinate grid. Titles and labels can be used to show the context of the information on the graph. This lesson builds on students' understanding of graphing points using ordered pairs on the coordinate plane. In the task, students must create a story that explains the points on the coordinate grid. This requires them to identify the points using ordered pairs and to determine how to get from one point to another. This lesson builds toward future lessons in which students must organize information from real world situations using a line graph on a coordinate grid. Vocabulary: x axis, y axis, x coordinate, y coordinate, title, origin, ordered pairs, context, interval, coordinate grid/plane, first quadrant Special Materials: None
