# Coordinate Axes Four Quadrants

## What is the resource?

It's a printable graph grid. But this one shows all four quadrants, where x and y values can be positive or negative. Ideal for secondary learners.

## Why are four quadrant grids important?

Graphs aren't just for maths class! They model countless real-world situations:

- Tracking locations: Maps, and GPS – all rely on negative and positive coordinates.
- Temperatures: Graphs showing above/below zero need all four sections.
- Finance: Profits and losses can be tracked along a horizontal number line.
- Science data: Often charts changes that can be both positive and negative.

## Why is this resource helpful?

It offers the foundation for advanced graphing work:

- Clear visualisation: Bold axes and numbered squares allow for accurate plotting.
- Negative practice: Helps students tackle coordinates with negative numbers.
- Blank template: Versatile for plotting points, graphing equations, and more.
- Flexible scale: Each square can represent different values as needed.
- Printable PNG: Great as a handout, homework task, or even blown up as a class display.

This resource supports the jump to more complex maths. Mastering all four quadrants is essential for advanced graph analysis.
