Terms in this set (18)
axis/axes
A reference line from which distances or angles are measured in a coordinate grid. (plural - axes)
coordinates
An ordered pair of numbers that identify a point on a coordinate plane.
coordinate plane
A two-dimensional system in which the coordinates of a point are its distances from two intersecting, usually perpendicular, straight lines called axes. (also known as coordinate grid or coordinate system)
coordinate system
Also known as a coordinate grid. A 2-dimensional system in which the coordinates of a point are its distances from two intersecting, usually perpendicular, straight lines called axes.
horizontal
Going side-to-side, like the horizon.
intersect
To meet or cross.
line
A set of connected points continuing without end in both directions.
ordered pairs
A pair of numbers that gives the coordinates of a point on a grid in this order (horizontal coordinate, vertical coordinate).
origin
The intersection of the x- and y-axes in a coordinate plane, described by the ordered pair (0, 0).
point
The exact location in space represented by a dot.
vertical
In an up-down position. Upright.
x-axis
In a coordinate plane, the horizontal axis.
x-coordinate
In an ordered pair, the value that is always written first.
y-axis
In a coordinate plane, the vertical axis.
y-coordinate
In an ordered pair, the value that is always written second.
first quadrant
The first section of the four sections of a coordinate grid. The four sections are separated by the axes.
intersection of lines
Lines that cross at a point.
rule
You have to follow the rule to be able to solve a problem.
