Co-ordinates tell us where a point is on a grid.

Co-ordinates tell us where a point is on a grid.

y

We write the numbers with the horizontal number first:

So far we have looked at

co-ordinates in one quadrant

We can also have co-ordinates

in more than one quadrant

We have to extend our axis

to fit the extra quadrants

We now have to number our axis

Because they go past 0 they are negative numbers
