**Maryland College and Career-Ready Education Standards**. Calculate the area of basic polygons drawn on a coordinate plane. Coordinate plane is a grid on which points can be plotted. The horizontal axis is labeled with positive numbers to the right of the vertical axis and negative numbers to the left of the vertical axis. Read More...

Area of Coordinate Polygons

MD.MA.6.NS. The Number System (NS)

Apply and extend previous understandings of numbers to the system of rational numbers.

6.NS.6. Extend number line diagrams and coordinate axes familiar from previous grades to represent points on the line and in the plane with negative number coordinates.

6.NS.6.b. Understand signs of numbers in ordered pairs as indicating locations in quadrants of the coordinate plane; recognize that when two ordered pairs differ only by signs, the locations of the points are related by reflections across one or both axes.

6.NS.6.b.1. Ability to introduce and define coordinate plane terminology, including coordinate plane and quadrants I, II, III, and IV.

6.NS.8. Solve real-world and mathematical problems by graphing points in all four quadrants of the coordinate plane. Include use of coordinates and absolute value to find distances between points with the same first coordinate or the same second coordinate.

6.NS.8.1. See the skills and knowledge that are stated in the Standard.

MD.MA.6.EE. Expressions and Equations (EE)

Represent and analyze quantitative relationships between dependent and independent variables.

6.EE.9. Use variables to represent two quantities in a real-world problem that change in relationship to one another; write an equation to express one quantity, thought of as the dependent variable, in terms of the other quantity, thought of as the independent variable. Analyze the relationship between the dependent and independent variables using graphs and tables, and relate these to the equation. For example, in a problem involving motion at constant speed, list and graph ordered pairs of distances and times, and write the equation d = 65t to represent the relationship between distance and time.

6.EE.9.3. Knowledge of terminology associated with graphing ordered pairs (5.OA.3).

MD.MA.6.G. Geometry (G)

Solve real-world and mathematical problems involving area, surface area, and volume.

6.G.3. Draw polygons in the coordinate plane given coordinates for the vertices; use coordinates to find the length of a side joining points with the same first coordinate or the same second coordinate. Apply these techniques in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems.

6.G.3.1. See the skills and knowledge that are stated in the Standard SC 6.

6.G.4. Draw polygons in the coordinate plane given coordinates for the vertices; use coordinates to find the length of a side joining points with the same first coordinate or the same second coordinate. Apply these techniques in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems.

6.G.4.1. See the skills and knowledge that are stated in the Standard.
