  # 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:   Statistics

Curriculum subtopic:   Use Charts and Graphs

Difficulty level:   #### Worksheet Overview

In this worksheet, we will learn about plotting points in quadrants 1 - 4.

In quadrant 1, the numbers are at the top right section of the graph with positive x and y-coordinates.

In quadrant 2, the numbers are at the top left section of the graph with negative x-coordinates and positive y-coordinates.

In quadrant 3, the numbers are in the bottom left section of the graph, with negative x and y-coordinates.

In quadrant 4, the numbers are in the bottom right section of the graph, with positive x-coordinates and negative y-coordinates. 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).
