# Ordered Pairs in Quadrants

## Worksheet Description

This worksheet displays a coordinate grid with images of different items such as fruits and vegetables plotted at various points. Each item is associated with a number listed on the side of the worksheet, and students are instructed to write the ordered pair that corresponds to the location of each image on the grid. The grid includes both positive and negative values, expanding across four quadrants, which requires students to pay attention to the signs of the numbers they record as ordered pairs.

The purpose of the worksheet is to teach students how to identify and write ordered pairs that correspond to points in all four quadrants of the Cartesian coordinate system. It helps them understand that the first number in an ordered pair indicates the horizontal position (x-coordinate) and the second number indicates the vertical position (y-coordinate). This exercise also introduces students to working with negative numbers on a coordinate grid, broadening their understanding of the coordinate plane. By associating familiar images with specific coordinates, the worksheet aims to make the abstract concept of graphing more concrete and relatable for learners.
