# Coordinate Grids All Four Quadrants

Suitable for Year groups: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11

## Coordinate Grids All Four Quadrants resource description

Here is a page of 4 quadrant coordinate grids for x-values of -20 to 20, and y-values of -10 to 10. Useful for basic coordinate activities, straight line graphs and other non-linear functions.

## 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.
