Positive Quadrant Coordinate Grids to 20
What is the resource?
This PDF provides blank coordinate grids. But there's a twist: they only show the 'positive' quadrant where both x and y values are positive. It suits primarily to early secondary.
Why are positive quadrant grids important?
They offer a stepping stone to fully coordinate grids in a few ways:
- Real-life focus: Lots of data (prices, quantities) only uses positive numbers.
- Reducing 'fear': Focuses on familiar numbers, building confidence with plotting.
- Intro to key concepts: Students still learn about (x,y) pairs and accurate graphing.
Why is this resource helpful?
This resource encourages good graphing habits from the start:
- Clear axes: Bold lines and numbered, aiding precise plotting practice.
- Sized for success: Larger squares make initial graphing less fiddly.
- Range of grid sizes: Allows teachers to increase difficulty when students are ready.
- Flexible tool: Works for simple plots, line graphs, and even drawing shapes.
- Printable PDF: Great for lessons, extra practice, or even fun challenges.
This resource lets students master graphing basics before going 'negative', promoting smoother progress in maths.
