Plotting Points Worksheets
How to Plot Points on a Graph - Cartesian points are written as x, y pairs in parentheses, like so: (x, y). To graph a point, first locate its position on the x-axis, then find its location on the y-axis, and finally plot where these points meet. The center point of the graph is called the origin and is written as the point (0, 0) because it's located at the zero point on the x-axis and the zero point on the y-axis. For example, to plot the point (3, -6), find the positive 3 on the x-axis and the negative 6 on the y-axis.
