First Quadrant

Welcome to the Math Salamanders Coordinate worksheets.

Here you will find a range of printable worksheets involving coordinates in the first quadrant.

There are a range of different activities from plotting coordinates, writing coordinates and reflecting shapes.

All coordinates consist of two numbers separated with a comma and usually within parentheses.

The first number is the horizontal coordinate, or the number along the x axis.

The second number is the vertical coordinate, or the number up the y axis.

So the coordinate (3,1) means 3 along and 1 up.

Often children get their coordinates the wrong way round and go up first and then along, ending up with the coordinate (1,3).

An easy way to remember the correct way is...

'x is a cross so the x coordinate always goes across.'

We can also say that...

'x always comes before y, so the x coordinate is always first.'

This means that...

- the first coordinate, the x coordinate, is the amount you go 'across';
- the second coordinate, the y coordinate, is the amount you go 'up' or 'down'.

On this webpage you will find our range of free printable coordinates worksheets for 4th and 5th graders.

All the sheets on this page involve plotting and writing down coordinates.

There are 3 separate sections of worksheets on this page.

The first set of sheets just involves plotting and writing down coordinates.

The second set of sheets involve reflecting a shape in a mirror line and then writing down the new coordinates of the reflected shape.

The third set of worksheets are themed coordinate worksheets which are designed for special occasions.

Using these sheets will help your child to:

- learn to write down coordinates in the first quadrant;
- learn to plot coordinates correctly;
- learn to reflect shapes and plot their coordinates.

The sheets on this page are suitable for children in grades 4 & 5.

We have some more challenging coordinate worksheets with coordinates in all 4 quadrants.

The sheets are a similar format to those on this page but use all four quadrants.

We have a selection of blank coordinate grids showing coordinates in 1, 2 or all 4 quadrants.

The grids are easy to print and can be quickly turned into a worksheet.
