# To investigate a problem, describing position on a 2-D grid as coordinates

## Lesson details

### Key learning points

1. In this lesson, we will revise prior learning about coordinates. We will continue to explore how points plotted on a grid can be referred to using coordinates. We will learn about the x and y axis and how to read coordinates to locate points on a grid. We will remember that one must read the x axis first followed by the y axis. We will investigate using our new knowledge.
