My how time flies! It is the end of the first six weeks!
I decided to have the kids review a fun topic... coordinate graphing. Right now we are only using a Quadrant 1 grid (whole numbers only), so our paper looked something like:
On a coordinate plane, just like on a graph, the lines have meaning:
- The point of origin (where you ALWAYS begin) is 0.
- The line going across the bottom is the X axis. This is the first coordinate in a set of coordinates.
- The line going up is the Y axis. This is the second coordinate in the set.
I gave the kids a set of instructions that was basically a page of coordinates. Their first coordinate was (1, 13). So, you go ACROSS the x axis to 1, then UP the y axis to 13 and place a dot where they intersect. You continue placing the dots (connecting them as you go), and when you are finished, you have a picture.
I will not post Monday or Tuesday as we will be at The Outdoor School!
Have a great weekend!
