An introduction to the use of coordinates for younger students

A point is plotted on a unit grid and its coordinates shown. Drag the point and see the coordinates change.

Next enter coordinates of some plotted points and then reverse the process, plotting points given their coordinates.

Finally students can plot points to create their own picture, write down the coordinates and challenge their partner to replicate the picture.
