Coordinate plane: games, activities, and worksheets online
This is an annotated and hand-picked list of online games, worksheets, and activities for coordinate plane, suitable for grades 4-7.
Coordinate Grid Worksheets
Students either plot points, tell the coordinates of points, plot shapes from points, reflect shapes in the x or y-axis, or move (translate) them up, down, left, or right. You can customize the worksheets choosing the number of problems, workspace, border around the problems, and more.
Catch the Fly
Wait for the fly to land on the coordinate grid, then type its coordinates, and a frog will eat it.
You will see a red circle on the grid. Enter the co-ordinates and click "check."
A self-teaching worktext for 4th-5th grade that covers angles, triangles, quadrilaterals, cirlce, symmetry, perimeter, area, and volume. Lots of drawing exercises!
Download ($6.90). Also available as a printed copy.
Coordinate Grid Quiz from ThatQuiz.org
This quiz has 10 questions and asks to either plot a point or give the coordinates of a given point. You can also modify the quiz parameters to your liking.
Create graphs of functions but also allows the manipulation of constants and coefficients in any function so the user can explore the effects on the graph by changing those numbers. Great tool!
Rate of Change in Linear Functions
These great interactive graphs illustrate the concepts of linearity and slope. Users can drag a slider to modify a rate of change (cost per minute for phone use) and learn how modifications in that rate affect the linear graph displaying accumulation (the total cost of calls). The discussions provided help the teacher in how to use them.
A free, online graphing calculator that is incredibly easy and intuitive to use, yet very powerful. You can use parameters with sliders, define your own functions and constants, graph inequalities, derivatives, and more. You can save, email, print, and embed your graphs.
