he checks the map key and see something called the wheel of doom yep

00:39

that'll do Chuck has a little problem though the map is set up as a [Chuck with his thumbs up smiling]

00:43

coordinate system man maybe Chuck should have spent a little more time on his

00:47

math homework and a little less time jumping snake creaks Chuck is going to

00:50

need some help the closest park employee is a guy in a fuzzy platypus costume [Chuck looking around the park for assistance]

00:54

it's kind of creepy but hey Chuck really used to get to that we love do Mr.

I still don't know where 53 is can you just point me in the right direction no

01:11

siree says Mr. Platypus you need to learn how to use a coordinate plane

01:14

Chuck sighs but Mr. Platypus just laughs a platypus laugh which sounds [A platypus laughing at Chuck]

01:18

kind of like this and then he starts going over all the basics for

01:22

01:26

ordered pair explaining how ordered pairs are used to locate points on a [diagram of a coordinate system drawn on a chalkboard]

01:30

coordinate plane suddenly it all starts to make sense to Chuck all he has to do

01:34

is move 5 units to the right and three units up 5-3 boom wheel of doom shucks

01:40

thanks mr. platypus for the weirdest math lesson he's ever had super excited [Chuck rushing off to the wheel of doom as Mr Platypus waves]

01:43

he run through the park and finds the wheel of doom no problem well there is

01:47

one little problem Chuck is too short to ride maybe they should rename this [A boy looking upset next to a 'Must be at least this tall to ride' sign]
