Help your students master plotting points on a four quadrant coordinate plane with this Mystery Picture of the Day packet! This packet is everything you need to help students excel in graphing. It is differentiated, easy to use, and challenging but achievable for your students.
What is the Mystery Picture of the Day packet?
The Mystery Picture of the Day packet is a 2-week packet that gives your students daily graphing practice! Each worksheet is labeled with the day of the week at the top. This makes it easy for students to get to work right away. When you use it as an entry task, students will come in, take out their packet, find the day of the week and practice plotting and connecting points to reveal the mystery picture.
Scaffolded Four Quadrant Coordinate Plane
The packet is scaffolded. For week 1, students will practice on a 5×5 four quadrant coordinate plane. During week 2, students will practice on a 10×10 four quadrant coordinate plane. The graphs increase in integers as students become more comfortable with graphing.
Differentiated – First Quadrant and Four Quadrant Coordinate Plane
In this download, you will find every mystery picture available in the four quadrant coordinate plane and the first quadrant coordinate plane. This will help you differentiate for your student’s needs. Students working in small groups can begin with the first quadrant graph to help them focus on finding the x-value first then meeting with the y-value. Your more proficient students may benefit from the four quadrant coordinate plane to give them a little more of a challenge.
