## The History of Coordinate

In mathematics, coordinate is a relation between two entities that allows for their simultaneous determination. Coordinate systems are the tools used to represent and manipulate these relations. Historically, coordinate systems have been used to solve problems in physics and engineering.

### What Does Coordinate Mean?

In mathematics, coordinate means relating two points in a plane. Coordinate systems are use to represent these relationships graphically. Coordinates can also be use in geometry to describe the shape of objects.

### What is all about the coordinate?

Coordinate is a term use in mathematics and physics that refers to a point, line, or other object that can be use to locate another object. Coordinate systems are use to describe locations, movements, and other properties of objects.

What does this have to do with algebra? Quite a bit, actually. Coordinate systems provide a way to represent linear equations in two or more variables. Modeling real-world situations using these systems can help engineers design better products or solve complex problems.

In algebra, coordinate representation is a way of thinking about equations. Rather than working with unknows (ie, the values that don’t appear in an equation), we work with knowns—variables that we know what they are suppose to be and how they interact with each other. The coordinates in an equation allow us to specify where those unknowns are located in space.

There are three main types of coordinate systems: Cartesian, polar, and vector. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages, but they all play a role in algebra.

### How to Use Our Coordinates

When we want to find a specific location on a map, we use coordinates. Coordinates are numbere lines that run all around the perimeter of a map. The numbers that identify each coordinate line are call the Cartesian coordinate system.

To find your location on a map, first find the latitude and longitude of your location. Latitude is measured from north to south, while longitude is measured east to west. To find these coordinates, you can use a GPS unit or online mapping tools like Google Maps. Once you have the latitude and longitude, you can use them to lookup the corresponding coordinate line on your map.

Here’s an example of how to use coordinates on a map:Say you want to go hike Mt. Whitney in California. You could locate Mt. Whitney using latitude and longitude (37°N, 118°W). You would then look up the coordinate for Mt. Whitney in your atlas or GPS unit- 34°48′N 121°12′W- and follow the line as it runs around the perimeter of your map. When you reach 34°48′N 121°12′W, you’ll have found your starting point for

## Ideas for Coordination

The Coordinate article from the January/February 2019 issue of Print magazine is a great read for any elementary or middle school student learning about coordinate geometry. Coordinate geometry helps students understand how points, lines, and shapes are related to each other. This article has ideas for using coordinate geometry in your classroom, as well as some games to help students practice theircoordinate skills.
