Drawing Ordered Pairs Worksheets
How to Draw Ordered Pairs  A coordinate system is comprised of twodimensional number lines, a horizontal one, and a vertical one. The horizontal axis is known as the xaxis, and the vertical one is known as the yaxis. An origin (0,0) is present at the center of the coordinate system, with both the axes intersecting at this point. An ordered pair has the coordinates of one point of the coordinate system. This point is named by the values present in the coordinate system and is presented as (x,y). The first value corresponds to the point present at the xaxis, and the second value corresponds to the value present at y. To draw a graph of the point, you draw a dot at the given coordinates corresponding to the ordered pair. It is best if you start at the origin. The xcoordinate tells you how many points to move to the right (positive) or left (negative) on the xaxis. And the ycoordinate tells you how many points to step down (negative) or up (positive) on the yaxis. For example, an ordered pair (3,4) is present when you move three points to the right on the xaxis and 4 points up on the yaxis. An ordered pair (1, 2) is found when you move 1 point on the left on the xaxis and 2 points up on the yaxis.

What Are Coordinates?
Coordinates are numbers that describe the location of points in a plane or in space. For example, the height above sea level is a coordinate that is useful for describing points near the surface of the earth.
