A graph is a type of chart or diagram. Very often Math students are afraid of graphs but there is no need to be. Think of graphs as a diagram or drawing that records information. We have five Algebra quizzes on the subject.
Play our first introduction quiz and your fears will disappear!














The paper on which a graph is drawn is often referred to as grid paper or graph paper  it has regular lines both across the page and upanddown the page



One axis but two axes (pronounced acksees)

You need to ensure that you never confuse the two axes and therefore it is important to remember this rhyme: 'y goes high to the sky'



It should be noted that graphs are often drawn that show only the positive values, but this does not always mean that the negative values are unimportant


The coordinates of the origin are (0, 0)



The coordinates firstly give the position along the x axis and then the position along the y axis. To remember which number comes first, remember that x comes before y in the alphabet

The first quadrant is the top right and then you move from one quadrant to the next in an ANTICLOCKWISE direction
