TLF ID M012009

This is an interactive resource about plotting and identifying points on the Cartesian plane. The resource can be used in one of two modes. In the View mode, the student can enter the coordinates, and the corresponding point is identified on the coordinate plane when the 'Plot' button is selected. In the Guess mode, the student is required to identify the x- and y-coordinates of a given point. Immediate feedback is provided and the activity automatically records a score that can be viewed in a separate pop-up window. The Learner and Help tabs, which can easily be accessed from the Activity screen, provide a useful definition of terms and information about completing the activity effectively.
