Understand a rational number as a point on the number line. Extend number line diagrams and coordinate axes familiar from previous s to represent points on the line and in the plane with negative number coordinates.



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 orthe same second coordinate. Apply these techniques in the context of solving real?world and mathematical problems.
