These worksheets will introduce your beginning students to the quadrants of a simple coordinate grid.

What is a Quadrant on a Graph? Coordinate geometry is an important branch of mathematics. Before one gets too deep into this branch, it is crucial to have a clear understanding of the basics as it will help in the development of advanced concepts that one will come across in the future. Starting with the basics, what is a quadrant on a graph? A graph quadrant is also known as a math quadrant. There are four sections of a cartesian plane. Each of these sections is dominated by a specific combination of negative and positive values of x and y. One such section on the cartesian plane is what we term as a quadrant. When you first came across a coordinate graph you probably noticed that it is composed of four distinct areas. Each of these areas are referred to as quadrants. They are labeled quadrants 1-4 (normally using Roman numerals I-IV). Quadrant I is the upper-right quadrant and then it goes like a counter-wise clock. Quadrant II is the upper left, quadrant III is the lower left, and quadrant IV is the lower-right.

These worksheets explain how to identify the quadrant or axis where a point lies, and how to identify a point's coordinates. Sample problems are solved and practice problems are provided. Your students will use these activity sheets to learn how to label the quadrants of a simple coordinate grid. Students will have to identify in which quadrant given coordinate points lie.

Quadrants - Meet the Skill

This is a grid in which the left-right (horizontal) direction is commonly called X. The up-down (vertical) direction is commonly called Y. When we put them together on a graph, they cross over at the ‘0’ point, we measure everything from there. The X Axis runs horizontally through zero. The Y Axis runs vertically through zero.

Try the Skill

In Quadrant I both x and y are positive, but in Quadrant II x is negative (y is still positive). In Quadrant III both x and y are negative, and in Quadrant IV x is positive again, while y is negative.
