## Lesson Overview

The students will be able to define a coordinate system, label the origin, y-axis, and x-axis, and put points on the coordinate plane. This is an active lesson that will make a lasting impression on your students’ learning.

## Essential Question

What is a coordinate plane?

How can we identify given points within the first quadrant of the coordinate plane?

How are given coordinates graphed in quadrant one of the coordinate plane?
