Coordinate Plane

The blank coordinate planes on this page include variations with labels on either the axis or the edge of the grid, as well as versions with quadrant labels. You can find full 4 quadrant coordinate planes, as well as just blank 1 quadrant coordinate planes in layouts setup for solving multiple homework problems on a single page.

Printable Blank Coordinate Plane Pages

The collection of printable PDF coordinate planes on this page provide a number of different layouts that should fit the needs of most middle school or high school algebra classes. The coordinate planes are dimensioned in customary or metric units, just like the blank graph paper on the site.

There are versions of the coordinate plane with and without axis labels, as well as versions that show the quadrant numbers in light text in the background of each quadrant. There are also versions of the coordinate plane with labels on the edges instead of on each axis itself, which can sometimes make graphing equations a little easier.

What are Coordinate Plane Quadrants?

Because a coordinate plane is naturally divided by its x axis and y axis, it creates four rectangular regions that are called quadrants. Each quadrant corresponds to a region containing points with the same positive or negative sign. For example, by convention the upper right quadrant is called quadrant 1 and contains only points that have both positive x and positive y values. The breakdown of the signs of coordinate points and their corresponding quadrants is shown in the table below...

Quadrant 1 Coordinate Planes

Quadrant 1 of the coordinate plane deals with positive x axis and y axis values, and it is often the first place students start graphing linear functions. This page includes quadrant 1 coordinate planes in various dimensions, along with layouts containing multiple blank quadrant 1 coordinate planes on a single page appropriate for completing homework problems.
