Let’s review some vocabulary!

Coordinate plane – the plane containing the x-axis and the y-axis

x-axis - the horizontal number line found on the coordinate plane

y-axis – the vertical number line found on the coordinate plane

quadrant - one of four sections into which the coordinate plane is divided

origin - the point where the x-axis and y-axis meet. (0,0)

coordinates - a pair of numbers used to show the exact position of a point on a
graph

quadrant I - the quadrant where all the x-coordinates and y-coordinates are
positive. (+, +)

quadrant II - the quadrant where all the x-coordinates and y-coordinates are
positive. (-, +)

quadrant III - the quadrant where all the x-coordinates and y-coordinates are
positive. (-, -)

quadrant IV - the quadrant where all the x-coordinates and y-coordinates are
positive. (+, -)
