# Ordered Pairs on a Coordinate Plane

If you need practice plotting points on a graph or writing the coordinates of points already on a graph then these simple ordered pairs worksheets are for you!

Maybe you’re having a hard time remembering which number goes first in the pair. If so, just remember this: “You have to walk before you can jump.”

That means that the x-value (the distance you move left or right from the origin) comes before the y-value (the distance you move up or down). In other words, an ordered pair is always written in the form (x,y).

## Identify the Coordinates of the Plotted Points (Printable PDFs)

Write the coordinates of points on a graph in this selection of worksheets. For beginners, choose to write ordered pairs for points in a single quadrant (where all x and y-values will be positive). For more advances learners choose the worksheets that have points plotted in all four quadrants!

## Plot the Points of Coordinates (Printable PDFs)

Now that you know how to write ordered pairs, get practice plotting points! Start by plotting points in a single quadrant (where all x and y-values will be positive). For more advances learners choose the worksheets for plotting points in all four quadrants!
