Reviewer Comments:

This Coordinate Graphing activity is a computer game where students practice naming and plotting points in the four quadrants of a coordinate grid. Students may play against each other or challenge the computer. The grid can be small (range from -3 to 3 on both axes), medium (range from -4 to 4 on both axes) or large (range from -5 to 5 on both axes). The student enters the coordinates for 6 "quarks" that are then hidden from view. The goal is to find the opponents 6 hidden "quarks" before his or her "quarks" are found. When playing against the computer students get practice with both plotting and naming points. The game is easy to use and provides feedback when errors are made. Computer and internet access is necessary to play this game.
