Students are expected to have already worked with this
kind of representation on paper: tables of values, battleships etc. If this isn't the case then it could
be introduced by getting students to match a pair of numbers to a member of a
set
to represent something such as seats in a cinema or where the students
themselves are seated in the classroom.
This unit introduces
students to the Cartesian plane through activities which encourage
them to
understand concepts related to cartesian coordinates as well as other
elements that form part of these kind of graphs.
