6.NS.8 Solve Problems: Points on the Coordinate Plane (1&2)

Posted: March 24, 2014 in Periods 1&2

6.NS.8 – Solve real-world and mathematical problems by graphing points in all four quadrants of the coordinate plane. Include use of coordinates and absolute value to find distances between points with the same first coordinate or the same second coordinate.
