In this activity, we will be plotting points on a set of x and y-coordinate axes, joining the points to form the shapes of letters.
Remember that the x-coordinate is plotted before the y-coordinate.
Join (4, 4) to (4, 9)
Join (4, 9) to (6, 9)
Join (6, 9 ) to (6, 7)
Join (6, 7) to (4, 7)
Which letter has been drawn?
We have drawn the letter P!
How do you feel about having a go at this?
The important thing is to plot the coordinates first before joining them up, so feel free to draw out a grid on a piece of squared paper before you begin.
Then, all you need to remember is to plot the position of the x-coordinate first!
