Learn how to plot points using all four quadrants of the Cartesian coordinate plane.

Students will be shown how to plot and read points (both positive and negative coordinates). Students should be able to locate positive and negative numbers along a number line.

You will get the most out of this tutorial if you have a pencil and grid paper to follow along. (Grid paper can be printed from a number of different websites.)
