# Coordinate System (Grade 5)

Videos, solutions, and lessons to help Grade 5 students learn how to use a pair of perpendicular number lines, called axes, to define a coordinate system, with the intersection of the lines (the origin) arranged to coincide with the 0 on each line and a given point in the plane located by using an ordered pair of numbers, called its coordinates.

Understand that the first number indicates how far to travel from the origin in the direction of one axis, and the second number indicates how far to travel in the direction of the second axis, with the convention that the names of the two axes and the coordinates correspond (e.g., x-axis and x-coordinate, y-axis and y-coordinate).

Common Core: 5.G.1

### Suggested Learning Targets

• I can construct a coordinate system and recognize the origin.
• I can recognize the x-axis and y-axis.
• I can identify an ordered pair.
• I can explain the relationship of an ordered pair and the location on the coordinate plane.
