To describe positions on a 2D Grid as coordinates

In this lesson, we will revise the names of different types of 2D shape. We will begin to explore how shapes can be referred to on a grid using coordinates. We will learn about the x and y axis and how to read coordinates to locate points on a grid. We will use the correct mathematical language for shape and coordinates for a variety of quadrilaterals.
