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 coordinates (two, one):
go right two, jump up one, and you’re done.
To plot (negative eight, positive two):
go left eight, up two. That’s what we do.
On the x-axis [count left or right].
On the y-axis [count up or down].
That’s how a coordinate’s point is found.
To plot the coordinates (nine, five):
go right nine, up five, to where you arrive.
For (negative three, negative nine):
go left three, down nine, where they intertwine.
To plot (positive six, negative four):
hop right six, down four. Let’s do one more!
With the ordered pair (zero, negative three):
remain at the origin; go down three with me.
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.
There are four quadrants; the first is in the top right corner. The second, third, and fourth go in counter clockwise order. Finally, there’s the place you begin
at (zero, zero) called the origin.
