How many numbers in an address - Visualizing Algebra

  • 0:00 - 0:04
    >> It looks like two numbers convey a lot of information. In algebra we use a
  • 0:04 - 0:09
    similar system to identify locations. This is system is called the coordinate
  • 0:09 - 0:13
    plane or the Cartesian plane. The system uses two lines known as the x axis and
  • 0:13 - 0:18
    the y axis. The x axis is the horizontal line and the y axis is the vertical
  • 0:18 - 0:23
    line that runs through plane. By drawing this graph we can create an infinite
  • 0:23 - 0:27
    world of numbers and intersections. Where the x axis and y axis intersect is
  • 0:27 - 0:32
    called the origin, the center. Just like we labelled streets and avenues on our
  • 0:32 - 0:37
    maps, we can label our axes with numbers, 0, 1, 2, and so on. We can do this in
  • 0:37 - 0:42
    the horizontal direction and in the vertical direction. To indicate a point on
  • 0:42 - 0:46
    this Cartesian system, how many numbers would we need to specify? This can be
  • 0:46 - 0:50
    tricky, so think back to our map. How many numbers would we need to specify a
  • 0:50 - 0:54
    point like this? I'm not asking you for the location, I'm asking you for the
  • 0:54 - 0:56
    number of points. Put your answer in this box.
