Vocabulary

x-axis

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

x-coordinate

The x-coordinate is the first term in a coordinate pair, 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 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.

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).
