Give directions to the driver of a car or a motorcycle, using the language of position and movement. Aligned with Common Core Standards: 4.MD.5 Measurement and Data: Geometric measurement: understand concepts of angle and measure angles; 5.G.1 Geometry: Graph points on the coordinate plane to solve real-world and mathematical problems.

Recognize angles as geometric shapes that are formed wherever two rays share a common endpoint, and understand concepts of angle measurement:
Use a pair of perpendicular number lines, called axes, to define a coordinate system, with the intersection of the lines (the origin) arranged to coincide with the 0 on each line and a given point in the plane located by using an ordered pair of numbers, called its coordinates. Understand that the first number indicates how far to travel from the origin in the direction of one axis, and the second number indicates how far to travel in the direction of the second axis, with the convention that the names of the two axes and the coordinates correspond (e.g., ?-axis and ?-coordinate, ?-axis and ?-coordinate).
