Math Words-Coordinate Plane


In this video you will learn about the coordinate plane.

Coordinate plane
The coordinate plane is a two-dimensional surface for the purpose of plotting lines, points, and even curves.
A coordinate plane has an x-axis, and y-axis, which are used to locate points on a coordinate plane. A point is named by two numbers called an ordered pair.
The x-axis is the horizontal scale, and the y-axis is the vertical scale.
The point where the x and y axis cross is called the origin.
