CLASS IX Understanding Coordinates of a Point 1. Drag Point P anywhere in the Quadrant I and observe the sign of X-Coordinate: + or - 2. Drag Point P anywhere in the Quadrant I and observe the sign of Y-Coordinate: + or - 3. Tick your Conclusion : Any Point in Quadrant I is of the form (i) (+,+) (ii) (+,-) (iii) (-,+) (iv) (-,-) 4. Drag Point P anywhere in the Quadrant II and observe the sign of X-Coordinate: + or - 5. Drag Point P anywhere in the Quadrant II and observe the sign of Y-Coordinate: + or - 6. Tick your Conclusion : Any Point in Quadrant II is of the form (i) (+,+) (ii) (+,-) (iii) (-,+) (iv) (-,-) 7. Drag Point P anywhere in the Quadrant III and observe the sign of X-Coordinate: + or - 8. Drag Point P anywhere in the Quadrant III and observe the sign of Y-Coordinate: + or - 9. Tick your Conclusion : Any Point in Quadrant III is of the form (i) (+,+) (ii) (+,-) (iii) (-,+) (iv) (-,-) 10. Drag Point P anywhere in the Quadrant IV and observe the sign of X-Coordinate: + or - 11. Drag Point P anywhere in the Quadrant IV and observe the sign of Y-Coordinate: + or - 12. Tick your Conclusion : Any Point in Quadrant IV is of the form (i) (+,+) (ii) (+,-) (iii) (-,+) (iv) (-,-) 13.
