Graphing (or plotting) points on a coordinate plane
Let's review 5th grade.
In 5th grade you worked with quadrant I.
Quadrant I, both x and y terms are positive.
For example, ordered pair (2,3) would be located in quadrant I.
The x axis is a horizontal number line.
The y axis is a vertical number line.
The origin is (0,0). You always start at the origin when graphing (or plotting) points on a coordinate plane.
First move to the x term.
Then move to the y term.
