'Coordinate Grids (1)' worksheet

Key stage:  KS 2

Curriculum topic:   Geometry: Position and Direction

Curriculum subtopic:   Use Coordinate Grids

Difficulty level:  

Worksheet Overview

We know how to read and plot coordinates on a coordinate grid with positive numbers.

Now we extend the grid in all directions to include negative numbers.

Look carefully at how the axes are numbered.

 

Coordinate grid A

Look at the point A.

Its x-coordinate is -5 on the x-axis.

Its y-coordinate is -3 on the y-axis.

Remember the x number comes before the y number.

A has coordinates (-5, -3).

 

Look at the coordinates of all four points of the parallelogram, shown below.

Remember to read the x before the y.
