Place Value


In our decimal number system, the value of a digit depends on its place, or position, in the number. 

Each place has a value of 10 times the place to its right.

A number in standard form is separated into groups of three digits using commas. Each of these groups is called a period.



Coordinates

     
Cartesian coordinates can be used to pinpoint where you are on a map or graph.
Using Cartesian Coordinates we mark a point on a graph by how far along and how far up it is:


                          
The left-right (horizontal) direction is commonly called X.

       The up-down (vertical) direction is commonly called Y.


Where they cross over is the "0" point, 
you measure everything from there
.
