This activity is intended to supplement Algebra I, Chapter 1, Lesson 6.
Problem 1 - Ordered Pairs
3. a. Where are the coordinates (negative, positive)?
b. Where are the coordinates (positive, negative)?
c. Where is the ordered pair when it is (positive, positive)?
d. Where is the ordered pair when it is (negative, negative)?
Plot the following ordered pairs on the graph at the right. Label each pair with the appropriate letter.
4. What phrase do the points spell?
Problem 2 – Order Pairs
Create the scatter plot and record your observation.
We saw that values of a function can be written as a set of ordered pairs, listed in a table of values, and graphed as a scatter plot.
Extension 1: Find some other real-life data. Represent it as a set of ordered pairs, table, and scatter plot.
Extension 2: Come up with your own puzzle like the one at the bottom on page 1 of this worksheet, that you can share with a friend and your teacher.
