 # Statistics: Plotting Points on X and Y Axes

In this worksheet, students plot and read points and understand the simple reflection of points in the x- and y-axes. Key stage:  KS 2

Curriculum topic:   Maths and Numerical Reasoning

Curriculum subtopic:   Interpreting Data

Difficulty level:   ### QUESTION 1 of 10

In this worksheet, we will learn about plotting points Remember that the x-coordinate comes before the y-coordinate.

The coordinates of the corners of the shape above are (1, 1), (4, 1), (5, 2), (3, 5).

Plot these points and join them as you go. (1, 1)(4, 1)(5, 2)(3, 5).
Which shape will you obtain?  A, B, C, or D A

Plot these points and join them as you go. (1, 1)(4, 1)(5, 2)(3, 5).
What co-ordinates will you obtain on reflecting your shape in the y-axis? (-1, 1), (-4, 1), (-5, 2), (-3, 5)

(1, -1), (4, -1), (5, -2), (3, -5)

Plot these points and join them as you go. (1, 1)(4, 1)(5, 2)(3, 5).
What co-ordinates will you obtain on reflecting your shape in the x-axis? (-1, 1), (-4, 1), (-5, 2), (-3, 5)

(1, -1), (4, -1), (5, -2), (3, -5)

• Question 1

Plot these points and join them as you go. (1, 1)(4, 1)(5, 2)(3, 5).
Which shape will you obtain?  A, B, C, or D B
• Question 2

Plot these points and join them as you go. (1, 1)(4, 1)(5, 2)(3, 5).

• Question 3

Plot these points and join them as you go. (1, 1)(4, 1)(5, 2)(3, 5).
Which shape you will obtain on reflecting your shape in the x-axis (A, B, C, D)? C
• Question 4

Plot these points and join them as you go. (1, 1)(4, 1)(5, 2)(3, 5).
What co-ordinates will you obtain on reflecting your shape in the y-axis? (-1, 1), (-4, 1), (-5, 2), (-3, 5)
EDDIE SAYS
Remember x comes before y in coordinates
• Question 5

Plot these points and join them as you go. (1, 1)(4, 1)(5, 2)(3, 5).
What co-ordinates will you obtain on reflecting your shape in the x-axis? (1, -1), (4, -1), (5, -2), (3, -5)
