Worksheet Overview

In this activity, we will learn how to interpret a coordinate grid with negative numbers. 


We have learnt 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.


Coordinate grid parallelogram


Let's try an example question. 



What are the coordinates of point B?



Its x-coordinate is 1 on the x-axis.

Its y-coordinate is -2 on the y-axis.

Remember the x number comes before the y number.

A has coordinates (1, -2).


Now it's time to try some questions yourself.
