Create ordered pairs from an input-output table and determine the rule for each table with this worksheet.
Ordered Pairs Worksheet
Are your students beginning to explore ordered pairs? Ordered pairs are a group of two numbers together that represent locations on a coordinate plane. The first number in an ordered pair represents the x-coordinate value, while the second number represents the y-coordinate value. Ordered pairs are a fundamental aspect of coordinate graphing.
With this double-sided worksheet, students will complete a variety of input-output tables from ordered pairs and determine the rule for each. Additionally, students will use a given rule to complete an input-output table and write the corresponding ordered pairs.
An answer key is included with your download to make grading fast and easy!
Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding
In addition to independent student work time, use this worksheet as an activity for:
- Guided math groups
- Lesson wrap-up
- Fast finishers
- Homework assignment
- Whole-class review (via smartboard)
For fast finishers, students can create their own rules and then complete an input-output chart.
If there are some students who may need a bit of support, consider inviting them to reference previous anchor charts, assignments, or lesson material. Additionally, this activity can be completed in a 1-on-1 setting or with a small group.
