## Eighth grade math - Coordinate plane review

Knowledge of coordinate grid, quadrants, coordinates of a point are essential for solving problems in coordinate geometry. Coordinates games helps one to learn concepts through games. Coordinate grid worksheets and coordinate graphing worksheets are useful in plotiting points and curves on a graph.

• #### What is the meaning of coordinates in math?

• Coordinates are a set of values that show an exact position. On maps and graphs it is common to have a pair of numbers to show where a point is: the first number shows the distance along and the second number shows the distance up or down. Example: the point (12,5) is 12 units along, and 5 units up.

• #### What is a coordinate geometry?

• Coordinate geometry is one of the most important and exciting ideas of mathematics. In particular it is central to the mathematics students meet at school. It provides a connection between algebra and geometry through graphs of lines and curves.

• #### What are the quadrants of a coordinate plane?

• The axes of a two-dimensional Cartesian system divide the plane into four infinite regions, called quadrants, each bounded by two half-axes. These are often numbered from 1st to 4th and denoted by Roman numerals: I (where the signs of the two coordinates are (+,+)), II (−,+), III (−,−), and IV (+,−).

• #### What is the first quadrant of the coordinate plane?

• This point is called the origin. The axes divide the plane into four quadrants. A point in a coordinate plane is named by its ordered pair of the form of (x, y). The first number corresponds to the x-coordinates and the second to the y-coordinate.
