**Summary**:* In mathematics, a coordinate plane is an area formed of two lines (horizontal and vertical). Some mathematicians also explained the coordinate plane as a two-dimensional surface completed by two number lines. Those number lines are horizontal (X-axis) and vertical (Y-axis). Coordinate Plane is an essential tool to help people solve many mathematic problems, such as geometry, algebra and calculus.*

### What is Coordinate Plane?

According to the Cambridge Dictionary, a coordinate plane is an area formed of two lines (horizontal and vertical). Those two lines cross and the point where the lines meet is called a zero point. Some mathematicians also explained the coordinate plane as a two-dimensional surface completed by two number lines. Those number lines are horizontal (X-axis) and vertical (Y-axis). They interact cross wisely to determine the form of the surface. Wherever you point an area within this plane, you need two elements to conclude the exact location, the position in the x-axis and y-axis. Hence the reason why this plane is two-dimensional.

The left and bottom area of the surface is the place for the negative integers (negative x-axis and negative y-axis). Meanwhile, the right and top ranges are for the positive integers (positive x-axis and y-axis). In addition, the intersection where the two lines meet is the origin. The coordinate of this surface can be in a positive or negative number and also could be zero. The coordinate plane has an alternative term, the coordinate graph, cartesian plane or rectangular coordinate plane grid.

### Why Should Students Learn about Coordinate Planes?

Based on Richard Wrights from Andrews University said in 1637, René Descartes found the coordinate plane system. Learning how to use and operate a coordinate plane is necessary when students study math. This system can help students to determine the position of something in geometry. It supports the learners in understanding the concept of two-dimensional area. Coordinate Plane is an essential tool to help people solve many mathematic problems, such as geometry, algebra and calculus.

In geometry area, people use coordinate planes to graph points, lines, and geometric shapes. We can determine the relative position of something by assigning the coordinates to each spot. In algebra, we can use the coordinate plane system to graph functions and equations, such as linear and quadratic equations. We can visualize and analyze the behaviour of an operation or equation by plotting points and connecting them with lines or curves. In calculus, we can use a coordinate plane to graph functions and analyze their behaviour, such as finding the slope of a tangent line at a specific point or calculating the area under a curve. The coordinate plane is an indispensable tool for mathematicians, scientists, and engineers, allowing them to model and analyze real-world problems graphically and intuitively.

### What are the Four Quadrants of Coordinate Planes?

The coordinate plane has four areas known as quadrants. A quadrant is an area surrounded by the intersection of horizontal (x-axis) and vertical (y-axis) lines. In the coordinate or cartesian plane system, this intersection divides the surface into four areas (Quadrant I, Quadrant II, Quadrant III and Quadrant IV). Some people use Q1, Q2, Q3 and Q4 when writing about quadrants to make it simpler. Q1 is on the upper-right area of the plane with both x and y positives coordinates. Q2 is beside Q1 (upper-left area) with negative x and positive y coordinates. Q3 is under Q2 (lower-left area) with negative x and y coordinates. Lastly, Q4 is beside Q3 and under Q1 (lower-right area) with positive x and negative y coordinates. The teacher should emphasize that the order of the quadrants in coordinate planes follows the anti-clockwise rules.

### What is the Explanation of Ordered Pairs?

When learning about coordinate planes, we cannot separate ordered pairs from them. It is a pair of elements (in this case, numbers) with the form (*a, b*). In coordinate planes, we use the ordered pairs to determine the position of something on the plane surface. The numbers consist of x-coordinates and y-coordinates. These pairs expressed the intersection location of the horizontal and vertical lines. The teachers should emphasize to the students that the order matters in ordered pairs (4, 3) is not the same as (3, 4). The first number should be the x-coordinates, while the last is the y-coordinates.

### How to Teach Students about Coordinate Planes?

Learning about coordinate planes might be challenging for some students as they struggle to understand the concept and context of the topic. However, the students need to master this lesson since it will be their ground knowledge to acquire more complex mathematic topics, such as geometry, algebra and calculus. Firstly, the teacher should ensure the students understand the concept and why they should study coordinate planes. The teacher can use various fun and exciting activities to help the students lift their burden in learning. Ensure to give them real-life applications and examples of coordinate plane usage. Use many worksheets to help the students practice their knowledge and become familiar with the Cartesian plane.
