Plot Points Given as Ordered Pairs on the Coordinate Plane

You can't get from point A to point B if you can't find point A. Using a helpful video lesson, viewers learn how to plot points on a coordinate plane. The instructor emphasizes the vertical and horizontal distance of the x and y coordinates and uses points in all four quadrants and on the y-axis.
