Treasure hunt worksheet.
1) What is a coordinate plane?
2) Where do we see coordinates? ie Maps, code, chessboard, etc
3) How do we plot points?
4) Can math draw a line?
Part 1) Graphing Points
Students will enter the single player world and find an NPC and a coordinate plane. The NPC will ask the student to graph four points on the coordinate plane using x and y coordinates. There will also be a help video for the students to watch as well.
Students will document their work with a picture in their portfolio and a file from the structure block.
Part 2) Identifying if a Point is on a Line.
After all the students finish problem 1 a door will open leading them to a room with three coordinate planes and lines on the wall. The NPCs will ask a multiple choice questions to identify which of the four points is on the line. The student will answer the question in the NPC and place the point with a diamond block. There will be a help video to assist students as well.
Part 3) Functions and Coordinates
The last room the students will be accompanied by a worksheet with three functions. The students will use the functions to generate coordinates, then use those coordinates to graph a line.
Part 3 Help video.
Open the Treasure Hunt World and have students enter as they finish. In creative mode, hide a chest filled with treasure and write down the coordinates. Trade your coordinates with a partner go into survival and use the coordinates as a map to find the treasure!

1) The student was able to plot points on a coordinate plane numbers on the x and y axes.
2) The student was able graph a line from a function on a coordinate plane.
3) The student was able to find points on a coordinate plane by solving functions.
