Welcome to the world of polygons on the coordinate plane! Let's dive into the exciting world of shapes and numbers.
Polygons are closed shapes with straight sides. Imagine a rectangle. It's a polygon! Now, let's learn how to plot them on the coordinate plane.
The coordinate plane has an x-axis and a y-axis. Think of them like a map! We use (x, y) coordinates to pinpoint locations.
Let's plot a triangle with vertices (2, 3), (4, 5), and (1, 7). Connect the dots to reveal your first polygon!

To find the area of a polygon, count the squares it covers on the coordinate plane. Learn this skill and explore the world of shapes!
Now, it's your turn! Plot different polygons and calculate their areas on the coordinate plane. You're on your way to becoming a geometry pro!
