First, students will learn how to plot points with integer coordinates, such as (-2, 3). Also, given a list of points, and a graph with all the points plotted except for one, students will learn how to determine which point in the list has not been plotted.

Next, students will learn how to determine the quadrant in which a given point lies. For example, in which quadrant is (-2, 7)?

After that, students will learn how to find the distance between two points having the same \(x\) or \(y\)-coordinate. For example, what's the distance between (-2, -4) and (-2, 5)?

Next, students will learn how to solve word problems involving the distance between two points with the same \(x\) or \(y\)-coordinate. Students will also learn how to interpret the quadrant and meaning of a given point from a word problem. They'll also learn how to solve word problems involving the distance between two points having the same \(x\) or \(y\)-coordinate.
