Big Ideas: Every point in the coordinate plane has a specific pair of coordinates that identify its location. This lesson builds on students' ability to locate rational numbers on horizontal and vertical number lines as well as graphing points in the first quadrant of the coordinate plane. The task asks students to hypothesize about what the coordinates of the given points could be. It is important for students to utilize their knowledge of rational numbers located between integers to help limit the range of their answers. This lesson builds towards students' ability to graph geometric shapes and algebraic relationships on the coordinate plane. Vocabulary: coordinates, coordinate plane, quadrants of the coordinate plane, x-axis, y-axis Special Materials: graph paper or premade coordinate plane worksheets
