Use this maths poster with your students when learning about graphing on a Cartesian plane.

## Graphing on a Cartesian Plane

Are your students starting to explore the concept of Cartesian planes? For many students, this is a fresh and exciting maths concept because it differs from adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing. Students learn how to interpret coordinates and plot points on a Cartesian plane. These points can then be connected to form lines on the graph.

This basic understanding of coordinate graphing will help students as they enter high school. Students will then begin to learn about more advanced topics, such as finding the slope of a line.

## How to Make the Most of Your Coordinate Graphing Poster

1. Print the poster and display it in your classroom for students to reference when doing independent work.
2. Print the poster and slip it into a clear sleeve. Use it in your guided groups as a reminder.
3. Print the poster, slide it into a clear sleeve and hang it on a ring as a reference tool for maths groups.

We’ve also come up with bonus ways to turn posters into interactive tools that really make your lessons stick!

📝 Create a fill-in-the-blank worksheet by removing selections of text.

📂 Place copies in students’ homework folders for reference.

💻 Provide posters as digital resources for virtual students.

🧠 Test students’ memories by showing them the poster, then hiding it and having them tell you what they remember.

✅ Incorporate posters into your lesson wrap-up: students write on a sticky note what they learned from the lesson and place it on the poster.
