# Graphing

• Back in Caveman days, there was only one way to measure where you were. • NUMBER LINE

• There’s Trog the caveman. He usually hunted around number 6.

Then he would go home, which was at “0”

Nobody ever left the trail. You just didn’t do it!

• BUT…..One day, Trog gets crazy and LEAVES the path!!

NOBODY ever did this before!!!! It was TOTALLY CRAZY!!

• Now Trog is lost. He’s not on the number line. How do we tell where Trog is?

• Easy!! With TWO number lines! One will measure sideways…

The other will measure up and down!!!

• Where is Trog from his house?

Start Here…

6 sideways, 5 up !

•These two number lines put together is called The Coordinate Plane

The line that measures sideways is called the x-axis.

SIDEWAYS = X

The line that measures up and down is called The y-axis.

Up and Down = Y

Where the lines meet is called the Origin

When giving a position on the coordinate plane, you always say the X-axis first….

(8, 6)
…then the Y-axis

Let’s Practice. Give the coordinates:

(-2,2)
a. k.a

(4,10) (0,0)
: T (4,-2) HE OR IG

(-6,-4)

IN

• The “COORDINATE PLANE” used to show how TWO THINGS ARE RELATED….
