Number lines are like rulers because they are divided into equal sections that are marked with numbers according to an increasing/decreasing pattern, depending on the direction you are moving along the line. Before you begin doing some coordinate graphing, it is important to make sure you can navigate a number line correctly.

Answer the questions below, using the number line as a reference.

number line from -10 to 10 with points annotated

1. Which letter is located at -8 on the number line?  A  
2. What number does the point B represent?  2  
3. How many units separate points T and V?  7  
4.What number does the point Q represent?  -10  
5. Which letter is located at 4 on the number line?  V  
6.What number does the point T represent?  -3  
7 If you begin at point B and move six units in a positive direction, at which point will you be?  C  
8. If you begin at point V and move twelve units in a negative direction, at which point will you be?  A

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., x-axis and x-coordinate, y-axis and y-coordinate).
