Come on a treasure hunt with the NUMBEROCK crew as we explore a deserted island and follow the coordinates on an ancient coordinate plane treasure map that leads our favorite characters to modern treasures!
The ordered pairs are followed into a cave where the words x-axis, y-axis, and origin are explored by torch light. Join us on this exciting adventure and you'll never forget how to plot ordered pairs on a coordinate plane.

Coordinate Plane Song Lyrics:
To plot the ordered pair two one:
go right two, jump up one, and it’s done.
To plot the coordinates seven ten:
go right seven, up ten, mark it with your pen.
On the x-axis [count to the right]
On the y-axis [count from the ground]
That’s how a coordinate’s point it found.
To plot the ordered pair three five:
go right three, up five, to where you arrive.
To plot the coordinates ten seven:
go right ten up seven, we did it again.
To plot the coordinates nine four:
hop right nine, up four, now one more;
With the ordered pair, zero four:
remain at the origin, count four from the floor.
The coordinates are kind of like clues
telling you where to plot the x and y values,
and when you see them on a questionnaire
they can be called coordinates or an ordered pair.
We plot x first, then y, that’s the order;
always starting from the bottom left hand corner -
that’s the place that we begin,
at zero zero called the origin.
