# Draw on coordinate planes - Coordinate Plane

### Draw on coordinate planes

In previous section, we learned how to label and plot coordinates on given grids. Astronomers often use grids and coordinates to determine the distance between bodies, such as planets, in space. In this section, we will draw figures on coordinate grids by connecting points on grids. The points will be connected in alphabetical order using straight lines. Finally, we will write instructions for how to draw these figures.
