Drawing Figures In The Coordinate Plane


In Topic C, students draw figures in the coordinate plane by plotting points to create parallel, perpendicular, and intersecting lines. They reason about what points are needed to produce such lines and angles, and investigate the resultant points and their relationships.

In preparation for Topic D, students recall Grade 4 concepts such as angles on a line, angles at a point, and vertical angles—all produced by plotting points and drawing figures on the coordinate plane (5.G.1). To conclude the topic, students draw symmetric figures using both angle size and distance from a given line of symmetry (5.G.2).
