## Becoming Familiar with the Coordinate Plane

In this pre-algebra lesson, Juni Mathematics instructor **Genesis** will be teaching you about the coordinate plane and key terms to know.

Coordinate planes are important to understand because they help us know how to read graphs, understand points in space, and even apply concepts in other subjects like data science and coding!

Read Genesis' Intro to Coordinate Planes lesson first to understand what coordinate planes are and how to use them. Then, use what you've learned with the **warmup questions** on this page to practice drawing coordinate planes and mapping points and lines.

Once you've checked your answers below, you can also keep practicing with Genesis' Drills for Segments in a Coordinate Plane (coming soon).

## Warmup Problems

- Draw a coordinate plane that has an x-axis that runs from -6 to 6 and a y-axis that runs from -7 to 7.
- Draw a coordinate plane that has an x-axis that runs from -5 to 5 and a y-axis that also runs from -5 to 5. Then draw a point, A, at the coordinates (-1, 4).
- Draw a coordinate plane that has an x-axis that runs from -3 to 5 and a y-axis that runs from -3 to 5. Then draw a point, B, at the coordinates (3, 2).
- What are the coordinates of the midpoint C on segment AB?
- What are the coordinates of the midpoint O on segment MN?
- Are the points A and B collinear?
- Are the points F and G collinear?
