Solve problems using points on a coordinate plane.

Core Standard5.G.1. Use a pair of perpendicular number lines, called axes, to define a coordinate system, with the intersection of the lines (the origin) arranged to coincide with the 0 on each line and a given point in the plane located by using an ordered pair of numbers, called its coordinates. Understand that the first number indicates how far to travel from the origin in the direction of one axis, and the second number indicates how far to travel in the direction of the second axis, with the convention that the names of the two axes and the coordinates correspond (e.g., xaxis and xcoordinate, yaxis and ycoordinate).
5.G.2. Represent real world and mathematical problems by graphing points in the first quadrant of the coordinate plane, and interpret coordinate values of points in the context of the situation. 
In Other WordsStudents will be able to make a graph and tell how to put the points on it. The coordinate plane is a graph made with two perpendicular lines. Each point on the graph is labeled with a "coordinate pair" that tells how far over and how far up each point is.

If MasteredThis interactive will have your student connect their knowledge of coordinate pairs with input/output function tables.

StandardClassify 2D shapes by their properties.

Core Standard5.G.3 Understand the attributes belonging to a category of twodimensional figures also belong to all subcategories of that category. For example, all rectangles have four right angles and squares are rectangles, so all squares have four right angles.
5.G.4 Classify twodimensional figures in a hierarchy based on properties. 
In Other WordsStudents will be able to explain what is the same and different about squares, rectangles and other quadrilaterals. For example, squares and rectangles both have four 90' angles, but a square also has all sides the same length. Click here.
