Jae made a map of her classroom using a coordinate plane. This table shows the ordered pairs that represent the locations of three students' desks.

Student Location of Desk
Jae (0, 1)
Max (-6, 1)

Step A
On the coordinate plane, plot the ordered pairs that represent the locations of the three students' desks.

Step B

• Explain why the points you plotted are correct. Use what you know about ordered pairs in your explanation. Use words, numbers, and/or symbols in your explanation.
• Jae wants to add the location of Dallan's desk to her map. Dallan's desk should be plotted at (-4, -4). Jae thinks that if she connects the points she will form a square. Explain whether Jae is correct or incorrect. Use what you know about ordered pairs and geometric shapes in your explanation. Use words, numbers, and/or symbols in your explanation.
