Position and direction: quadrants, translations and reflections
This guide provides a sequence of small steps for learning about and plotting coordinates in the first quadrant before extending student knowledge to read and plot coordinates in all four quadrants. This knowledge is then used to translate and reflect shapes in all four quadrants.
