We are beginning our unit on graphing linear equations.

To begin, we must make sure we are all comfortable plotting points on the coordinate plane.

The coordinate plane has two axes and four quadrants. The two number lines form the axes. The horizontal number line is called the

**x-axis**and the vertical number line is called the**y-axis**. The center of the coordinate plane is called the**origin**. It has the coordinates of (0,0). Locations of points on the plane can be plotted when one coordinate from each of the axes are used. This set of x and y values are called**ordered pairs**.Go practice on IXL:
