Unit 7 Problem Solving with the Coordinate
Plane Grade 5 Math 

Description: In unit 7, students use
the first quadrant of the coordinate plane to solve problems. They use coordinates to locate and plot
points. They use the coordinate system
to analyze relationships between points, ordered pairs, patterns, shapes and
lines. Students apply their knowledge
of the coordinate system to real world problem solving. 

Standards:


Enduring Understandings: ·
In a coordinate plane, the first
number indicates how far to travel from the origin in the direction of one
axis and the second number indicates how far to travel in the direction of
the second axis. ·
The coordinate plane can be used
to model and compare numerical patterns. ·
Real world situations may be
represented on a graph. ·
Patterns and relationships can be
represented numerically, graphically, symbolically, and verbally. ·
Graphical representations can be
used to make predictions and interpretations about real world situations. 
Essential Questions: ·
Why is it important to use precise
language and mathematical tools in the study of 2dimensional and
3dimensional figures? ·
How can you use ordered pairs to
locate points in a coordinate plane? ·
How do coordinate grids help you organize
information? ·
How can numerical patterns be
plotted on a graph? ·
How can analyzing points plotted
on a graph provide different types of information within a real world
situation? ·
How can the coordinate system help
you better understand maps? ·
How can describing, classifying
and comparing properties of 2dimensional shapes be useful in solving
problems in our 3dimensional world?
