What a brilliant site you have!!! I love it, especially as it saves me hours and hours of hard work. Others who haven't found your site yet don't know what they are missing!

It is quite frankly the best money I have ever spent on my child. I really cannot thank you enough for providing this, it really is brilliant.

You have the most amazing program. Everybody loves it and the student's results have been in the high 90%'s, it's definitely due to your program.

  • 5 – Grade 5
    • 5.MD – Measurement & Data
      • Mathematics

        • 5.G.1 – Use a pair of perpendicular number lines, called axes, to define a coordinate system, with the intersection of the lines (the origin) arranged to coincide with the 0 on each line and a given point in the plane located by using an ordered pair of numbers, called its coordinates. Understand that the first number indicates how far to travel from the origin in the direction of one axis, and the second number indicates how far to travel in the direction of the second axis, with the convention that the names of the two axes and the coordinates correspond (e.g., x-axis and x-coordinate, y-axis and y-coordinate).
