Graph points on the coordinate plane to solve realworld and mathematical problems
5.G.A.1 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 conventions that the names of the two axes and the coordinates
correspond (e.g., xaxis and xcoordinate, yaxis and ycoordinate).

5.G.A.2 Represent real world and mathematical problems by graphing
points in the first quadrant of the coordinate plane, and interpret
coordinate values of points in the context of the situation.

Classify twodimensional figures into categories based on their properties
5.G.B.3 Understand that attributes belonging to a category of twodimensional figures also belong to all subcategories of that category. For example, all rectangles have four right angles and squares are rectangles, so all squares have four right angles.
