    Vocabulary

    x-axis

    The x-axis is the horizontal axis in the coordinate plane, commonly representing the value of the input or independent variable.

    y axis

    The y-axis is the vertical number line of the Cartesian plane.

    Abscissa

    The abscissa is the x-coordinate of the ordered pair that represents a plotted point on a Cartesian plane. For the point (3, 7), 3 is the abscissa.

    Cartesian Plane

    The Cartesian plane is a grid formed by a horizontal number line and a vertical number line that cross at the (0, 0) point, called the origin.

    Coordinate grid

    The coordinate grid is formed by a horizontal number line and a vertical number line that cross at the (0, 0) point, called the origin. The coordinate grid is also called a Cartesian Plane or coordinate plane.

    Coordinate Plane

    The coordinate plane is a grid formed by a horizontal number line and a vertical number line that cross at the (0, 0) point, called the origin. The coordinate plane is also called a Cartesian Plane.

    Coordinates

    The coordinates of a point represent the point's location on the Cartesian plane. Coordinates are written in ordered pairs: (x, y).

    Ordered Pair

    An ordered pair, (x, y), describes the location of a point on a coordinate grid.

    Ordinate

    The ordinate is the y-coordinate of the ordered pair that represents a plotted point on a Cartesian plane. For the point (3, 7), 7 is the ordinate.

    Origin

    The origin is the point of intersection of the x and y axes on the Cartesian plane. The coordinates of the origin are (0, 0).
