Cartesian Plane Mcworld
The base Cartesian plane world for student to explore and build within.
What is a coordinate plane? Where and in what context are coordinates used in our everyday life? When plotting coordinates, which number comes first?
Students will work both individually and in pairs for this lesson.
N.B. You will find 6 student example challenges attached to this lesson. They are examples for your students to consider They could also be used to reverse engineer and discover the Cartesian coordinates used to create them.
Students will develop knowledge of the four quadrants on a Cartesian plane and with given coordinates, be able to find and plot those points onto a Minecraft Cartesian plane.
Furthermore, students will be able to create a pixel image on a Cartesian plane and plot those coordinates as instructions for a peer to create within Minecraft.
