Examples, solutions, videos, and lessons to help Grade 6 students learn to solve real-world and mathematical problems by graphing points in all four quadrants of the coordinate plane. Include use of coordinates and absolute value to find distances between points with the same first coordinate or the same second coordinate.
Common Core: 6.NS.8
Graphing points in all four quadrants on the coordinate plane (6.NS.8)
Using the Coordinate Plane (6.NS.8)
Rule: The distance of a point to the y-axis is the absolute value of the point’s x-coordinate, and its distance to the x-axis is the absolute value of its y-coordinate.
