Four Quadrants


Notes and Guidance

Children extend their knowledge of the first quadrant to read and plot coordinates in all four quadrants. They draw shapes from coordinates given. Children need to become fluent in deciding which part of the axis is positive or negative. Children need to develop understanding of how to find the length of a line by using the coordinates of its two endpoints.


Maths Talk

Which axis do we look at first?

If (0, 0) is the centre of the axis (the origin), which way do you move along the 𝑥-axis to find negative coordinates?

Which way do you move along the 𝑦-axis to find negative coordinates?
