Naming Quadrants Worksheets
What Is a Graph Quadrant? A graph is typically divided into four quadrants with its horizontal axis (xaxis)and vertical axis (yaxis) meeting at the origin (0,0). Both the axes reach the positive and negative infinity and forming four combinations of (x,y) in four quadrants. Here we have given a brief description of four quadrants: First Quadrant  The quadrant I or the upperright quadrant has the points ranging from 0 to the positive infinity for both x and y axes. Hence, any point (x,y) in the first quadrant is positive for the xaxis and the yaxis. so, the product of coordinates will also be positive [(+) x, (+)y] Second Quadrant  The quadrant II or the upperleft quadrant indicates the points left to zero (negative points) on the xaxis and the points above zero (positive points) on the yaxis. Therefore, any point in the second quadrant will be negative for the xaxis and positive on the yaxis. So, the value of the product is also negative [()x, ()y] Third Quadrant  Quadrant III or the lowerleft part of the graph identifies points less than zero on the yaxis and xaxis. Any point present in this quadrant will be negative for both x and y values. The product values will be positive [()x, ()y] Fourth Quadrant  Quadrant IV, or the lowerright part of the graph, has the points that are below zero on yais and right to the zero on the xaxis. Hence, all points within this quadrant will have a positive xvalue and a negative yvalue. The value of the product will be negative in this quadrant [(+)x, ()y]

Basic Lesson
Demonstrates the concept of coordinate graph quadrants. Offers stepbystep identification. Name the Quadrant where each point is located. If the point is on an axis line ( axis X, or Y ) Then name the axis line.

Coordinates such as latitude and longitude form a coordinate system on the surface of the earth, which is a sphere. Coordinates such as these are also important for astronomers in describing the location of objects in the sky.
