Describe positions on a 2-D grid as coordinates (all four quadrants)

Introduced in the Year 6 curriculum as: "Describe positions on the full coordinate grid (all four quadrants)"

This coordinate grid has four quadrants.

The x-axis and y-axis both go into negative numbers.

To plot a coordinate we go:

'along the corridor and up (or down!) the stairs'


Example 1: The coordinates of B are (-3, 1)


Example 2: The coordinates of D are (-3, -3)
