## Description

This example showcases plotting coordinates in both the first and second quadrants of the Cartesian Coordinate Plane. The image displays four points: (1, 1) and (5, 3) in the first quadrant, and (-2, 8) and (-9, 3) in the second quadrant. This example demonstrates how points can be distributed across different quadrants based on their coordinates.

Understanding how to plot points across multiple quadrants is crucial for developing a comprehensive grasp of coordinate geometry. This collection of examples helps students visualize the relationship between coordinate pairs and their positions on the plane, particularly when dealing with points in different quadrants simultaneously.

By providing examples that span multiple quadrants, students can develop a more nuanced understanding of the Cartesian coordinate system. This approach helps reinforce the concept of how the signs of x and y coordinates determine a point's quadrant.

**Teacher's Script:** Notice how the signs of the coordinates determine which quadrant each point is in. The points with both positive coordinates are in the first quadrant, while those with negative x and positive y are in the second quadrant. Can you explain why this is the case? If you're unsure about how to determine which quadrant a point belongs to, let's discuss it further.
