Investigation Four: Coordinate Graphs
 Calculating...
Lesson  (...)
Lesson: Introduces students to plotting points on the Cartesian coordinate system -- an alternative to "Graphing and the Coordinate Plane."

Activity  (...)
Activity: Enter a set of data points, then derive a function to fit those points. Manipulate the function on a coordinate plane using slider bars. Learn how each constant and coefficient affects the resulting graph.

Activity: Students investigate very simple functions by trying to guess the algebraic form from inputs and outputs. Function Machine is one of the Interactivate assessment explorers.

Activity: Investigate the Cartesian coordinate system by directing a robot through a mine field laid out on the plane. Maze Game is one of the Interactivate assessment explorers.

Activity: Plot ordered pairs on the graph, and they will be connected in the order that they are input. This enables you to decide how the pairs should be connected, rather than having the computer connect them from left to right.

Activity: Plot a bivariate data set, determine the line of best fit for their data, and then check the accuracy of your line of best fit.

Activity: Plot ordered pairs of numbers, either as a scatter plot or with the dots connected. Points are connected from right to left, rather than being connected in the order they are entered.
