Co-ordinates etc

The following link will take you to a padlet page, where you will need to answer 2 questions,

1. Where are co-ordinates useful?

2. What do you already know about co-ordinates?



Before we get into co-ordinates, we need to do a review on sequences work.

You have the choice of 3 levels of work and 10 minutes to complete as far as possible.

Please make sure you do all working in your book. Ready, steady, GO!

...10 Minutes...


Straight Line Graphs

Now have a go at drawing these lines, ensuring you draw out a table of coordinates for each new straight line just like the example in your book.

Keep your eye out for any patterns you spot - make any notes in your book.

You must use a new set of co-ordinate axes for each question - you may use the axes provided (just stick them in).

You may start on the green or blue questions then work through in order.

Let's play Battleships


  • Pick one of these cartoon co-ordinates to draw for homework (Cartoon 4 is more challenging than cartoon 1).
  • Co-ordinates should be joined in order as you go along
  • You should be able to see what it is by the end.
  • You can create your own set of co-ordinates for Ms Clark to try if you wish.
