The coordinate plane is a grid used in mathematics to locate and describe points in two-dimensional space.
It consists of an x-axis (horizontal) and a y-axis (vertical) that intersect at the origin (0,0).
A point on the plane is identified by its coordinates, written as (x, y), where 'x' represents the horizontal position and 'y' represents the vertical position.
To plot a point, move along the x-axis by 'x' units and then move along the y-axis by 'y' units from the origin.
Understanding the coordinate plane is fundamental for graphing, geometry, and various math concepts.
