Coordinates at a glance

 

Coordinates are pairs of numbers which identify the position of a point on a coordinate grid. Coordinates of points are given in the form (x, y) where the x coordinate tells you the point’s position on the horizontal axis (the x axis) and the y coordinate tells you the points position on the vertical axis (the y axis). For example, if the point a has coordinates (3, 4), it would line up with 3 on the x axis and 4 on the y axis. 

 

When reading coordinates, we first look at the point’s position in relation to the x axis and write this as the first number in the coordinate pair. We then look at the points position on the y axis and write this as the second number. Coordinates are always written in brackets with a comma between them. 

 

When plotting points, we look at the value of the x coordinate and move along to this position on the x axis. We then look at the y coordinate and move up or down to this position relative to the y axis to plot the point.  

 

Coordinates can be integers or decimals, positive numbers or negative numbers. When introducing how to plot coordinates, it is best to start with coordinates in the first quadrant, with positive values for x and y.

 

Looking forward, students can then progress to additional types of graphs worksheets and other algebra worksheets, for example a sequences worksheet, simultaneous equations worksheet or straight line graphs worksheet.
