Simpsons Coordinates

Overall rating 4 out of 54.1 (15 ratings)

Last updated 20 March 2014, created 06 November 2011, viewed 21,089

Here are a couple of pictures of the Simpsons which students can recreate to practise plotting coordinates in all four quadrants or just the positive quadrant. Lisa requires the use of all four quadrants whilst Bart only requires positive. There are the grids included and also an extra sheet to get More…students to draw their own axis and find out what the pictures are.

Terrific - ideal for a reminder of co-ordinates before moving onto y=mx+c with my bottom set.

Brilliant, apart from the incorrect coordinates, I came up with these as some correct coordinates for Lisa's beads: (-1,-10) , (-2,-11), (-3,-11), (-4,-10), (-4,-9), (-3,-8), (-2,-8), (-1,-9), (-1,-10), (0,-11), (1,-11), (2,-10), (2,-9), (3,-8), (4,-8), (5,-9), (5,-10), (4,-11), (3,-11), (2,-10), (2,-9), (1,-8), (0,-8), (-1, -9) Fingers crossed they will work when I try it tomorrow!
