y-axis

the vertical line on a coordinate grid

x-coordinate

the first number in an ordered pair which tells how far to move horizontally along the x-axis

y-coordinate

the second number in an ordered pair which tells how far to move vertically along the y-axis

coordinate grid

A grid formed by a horizontal line called the x-axis and the vertical line called y-axis

origin

The point (0,0) where the x-axis and the y-axis intersect on a coordinate plane AND where you always start when graphing

Where will you find (0,10) located on the coordinate grid?

On the y-axis

Where will you find (0,0) located on the coordinate grid?

At the Origin

Where will you find (3,0) located on the coordinate grid?

On the x-axis

Vertical

Up and down

Horizontal

Left and right, side to side

Point

An exact location in space. On a coordinate grid, a location named by an ordered pair.
