Lesson Review:

Practice Exercises:

Interactive Practice:

  1. Billy Bug – Move the bug to help him feed. Quadrant I only 10×10 grid
  2. Billy Bug 2 – Move the bug to help him feed. Uses all four quadrants, four 5×5 grids
  3. Catch the Fly – Use the keyboard to enter the x and y values of an ordered pair to help the fly catch a bug. No score is kept, each question is essentially a one question game.
  4. Coordinate Geometry – Match descriptions with a point.
  5. General Coordinates Game – Investigate the Cartesian coordinate system through identifying the coordinates of points, or requesting that a particular point be plotted.
  6. Graphing Applet – This interactive site identifies the ordered pairs of points you click on.
  7. Graphing Equations and Inequalities Unit Quiz Check your understanding with this eight question quiz.
  8. Graphing Ordered Pairs – explanation and interactive practice
  9. Greg’s Grid Graphs – Help Greg and his family plan their visit to the museum
  10. Identify Shapes – Recognize properties and names of shapes.
  11. Maze Game – Use your knowledge of points on a plane to move a robot to the target, while avoiding mines.
  12. Ordered Simple Plot – interactive coordinate plane from Shodor
  13. Practice problems from Math.com: The coordinate plane, Slope and y-intercept, and Graphing linear equations.
  14. Reading a Grid – Find Hurkle behind the grid. Type ordered pairs to find him.
  15. Simple Coordinates Game – Investigate the first quadrant of the Cartesian coordinate system through identifying the coordinates of points, or requesting that a particular point be plotted.
  16. Simple Maze Game – Investigate the first Quadrant of the Cartesian coordinate system by directing a robot through a mine field laid out on the plane.
  17. Spy Guys Interactive – Using Ordered Pairs – watch the video and respond at various places Lesson 18 This video includes sections which ask students to inpur responses
  18. Stock the Shelves – You have two minutes to put the soda bottles in their correct places on the coordinate plane.
  19. What’s the Point? – Play a coordinate plane game from Funbrain.com. (use the hardest level)
  • Transformation Try out the differnt transformations: reflection, rotation, and translation
  • Bathroom Tiles While Pythagoras has a bath, work out how to rotate, reflect and translate the patterns on the bathroom tiles.
  • Alphabet Transformation See the alphabets flip, slide and turn
  • Icy Slides, Flips and Turns Determine whether the transfrormation is a slide, flip or turn
  • RoboPacker Fit the robots into the suitcase. You may need to slide, flip or turn the robots to fit.
  • Transformation Golf Play golf using transformation. Try to get the golf ball into the hole with the least number of moves.
