In other words, they are locked out of most of the growth that our economy is going to experience in the future. According to the federal government, eight out of ten jobs in the next twenty years are going to be computer related. If you want your child to have access to the major portion of jobs in the future, your child must master math. It is that simple. Teachers are actually doing their best to educate children.

How Do You Find Points In A Graph? This set of numbers (2, 3) is an example of an ordered pair. The first number refers to the value of x while the second number stands for the value of y. When ordered pairs are used to find points on the grid, they are called the coordinates of the point. In above example, the x coordinate is 2 while the y coordinate is 3. Together, they enable you to locate the point (2, 3) on the grid. What is the point of all this? Well, ever wondered how ships describe exactly where they are in the vastness of the ocean? To be able to locate places, people have to draw a grid over the map and describe points with the help of x and y coordinates.
