# Picture Plot

By Johnnie Ostermeyer

## Directions

1. Review the suggestions below and plot the following points on a graph to review graphing and the coordinate system.

• Plot the following points in order they appear and connect them as you go.
• Notice there are semi-colons ( ;) in the code.
• Were there is a semi-colon, a line should not be drawn connecting the point before the semi-colon and after the semi-colon.
• If your results do not make a picture or word, review the points.
• Watch out for those tricky negative numbers.

Points to plot:

(-5,3), (-4,1), (-3.5,2), (-3,1), (-2,3);  (-1,1), (-2,1), (-2,2), (-1,2), (-1,1.5), (-1.5,1.5); (0,1), (0,3); (2,2), (1,2), (1,1), (2,1); (3,2), (4,2), (4,1), (3,1), (3,2); (5,1), (5,2), (6,2), (6,1.5), (6,2), (7,2), (7,1); (9,1), (8,1), (8,2), (9,2), (9,1.5), (8.5,1.5) What makes you think your plot is accurate?

Draw a plot on the following graph . You can exchange your plot with a partner and each can identify the ordered pairs for each key point on the other's plot and list them so another person can create your diagram. If there are points that shouldn't be connected, use a semi colon to indicate that.

Record the ordered pairs for your plot.

Record the ordered pairs for your partners diagram.

Plot your partner's ordered pairs below. What makes you think your plot is accurate?
