Reporting Category 3 (TEKS 5.8 Coordinate Plane)

Geometry and Measurement

The videos in this post explain mathematics Texas Essential Knowledge and Skill 5.8:

Geometry and measurement. The student applies mathematical process standards to identify locations on a coordinate plane.

The STAAR videos below are selected released items from 5th grade STAAR tests in 2016, 2018, 2019, and 2021. You can view the complete review of the 2017 STAAR test here.



describe the key attributes of the coordinate plane, including perpendicular number lines (axes) where the intersection (origin) of the two lines coincides with zero on each number line and the given point (0, 0); the x- coordinate, the first number in an ordered pair, indicates movement parallel to the x- axis starting at the origin; and the y- coordinate, the second number, indicates movement parallel to the y- axis starting at the origin
