Cartesian Coordinates Design

In this math lesson, we will be learning about the cartesian grid. It is designed for 6 to 12-year-old children.

What is the Cartesian Grid?

The cartesian grid is a coordinate system that consists of two lines that run perpendicular to each other. The vertical axis is called the y-axis, and the horizontal axis is called the x-axis.

The video lesson demonstrates how to create a cartesian coordinate design, write the coordinates of a point and plot it on the grid.

Invite the child to explore this practical method and get a better understanding of the math facts. Repeat this activity by asking the child to make their favorite design on the grid and write its coordinates, as shown in the video.
