# Coordinate Picture Graphs

Updated: Apr 15, 2021

Though not immediately apparent, learning coordinate graphs plays a critical role in children's understanding of horizontal (X) and vertical (Y) lines. The skills gained from these graphs can help them read maps, understand latitude and longitude, and master translations, reflections and rotations.

Teaching methods can include using ordered pairs to create coordinate picture graphs with various patterns, which nurtures interest in this specific math skill.

### Potential Obstacles in Teaching Coordinate Graphs

Children may initially experience confusion differentiating between the X and Y lines. However, visual aids such as board games or symbolic codes (like a door representing X as a start point and Y as an exit or end point) can aid understanding. Practicing with coordinate picture graphs can also reinforce this learning by having kids create shapes or pictures from given ordered pairs, thereby understanding where to start and end on the graph.

### Creating Picture Puzzles with Coordinate Graphs

Engage children in coordinate graph activities by making worksheets with picture puzzles. It's crucial to use correct coordinates for the picture graph. After kids plot the points, they will create a picture. Start with basic shapes like triangles, hexagons, or octagons as they are easier for establishing coordinates and instruction-following.
