# Placement in Quadrants

## Worksheet Description

This worksheet features a coordinate grid that includes both positive and negative values on the x-axis (horizontal) and y-axis (vertical), spanning from -5 to 5 on both axes. Accompanied by the grid is a list of ordered pairs, each labeled with a letter from A to J. Students are tasked with plotting each ordered pair on the grid and then labeling the plotted point with its corresponding letter. The exercise is straightforward, focusing on identifying the correct location for each pair within the grid’s bounds.

The worksheet is designed to teach students how to work with a coordinate plane that encompasses all four quadrants, allowing them to practice plotting both positive and negative values. It emphasizes the concept that the x-coordinate dictates the horizontal position while the y-coordinate dictates the vertical position of a point. This activity serves to strengthen students’ understanding of the coordinate system as a whole. Moreover, it prepares them for graphing more complex functions and understanding spatial relationships in mathematics.
