Some people have trouble remembering what the two numbers in a set of coordinates represent. The first number is the x-coordinate and tells you how many units you go across to the right (negative numbers move you to the left). The second number tells you how many to move up (negative numbers move you down).

The following saying helps you remember the order of the coordinates:

Along the corridor then up the stairs.

Don't wait until you have positioned all of the points before you click on the 'Check' button. Click it often as you work through the activity to see if you are doing it correctly.

"Just wanted to let you know that at the start of level 4 I had a problem with placing coordinates beyond 30 because the box holding the coordinates are covering half of the grid.

[Transum: Thanks for your feedback Alaina but the software chooses the coordinates so that they are not in the area covered by that box. Look out for the negative signs.]"
