2016 Spring Release, Mathematics - Grade 5
Download PDF Document Question 1 - Multiple-Choice

Reporting Category: Geometry
Standard: Mathematics.5.G.1.01 - Use a pair of perpendicular number lines, called axes, to define a coordinate system, with the intersection of the lines (the origin) arranged to coincide with the 0 on each line and a given point in the plane located by using an ordered pair of numbers, called its coordinates. Understand that the first number indicates how far to travel from the origin in the direction of one axis, and the second number indicates how far to travel in the direction of the second axis, with the convention that the names of the two axes and the coordinates correspond (e.g., x-axis and x-coordinate, y-axis and y-coordinate).

No Calculator
 Points A, B, C, and D are shown on the coordinate grid below.
A coordinate grid with four points on it. The x- and y- axes are both labeled in units from zero to five. Point A is located zero units in the x direction and four units in the y direction. Point B is located three units in the x direction and four units in the y direction. Point C is located four units in the x direction and three units in the y direction. Point D is located three units in the x direction and zero units in the y direction.
What point represents the ordered pair (3, 4)?
