Quadrants of the coordinate plane

If you look out at the horizon you'll see a horizontal line. 

I always wondered why the quadrants were numbered in counter clockwise direction. 

I found my answer on twitter. Where does the sun rise? In the east  

I have not found out why they are numbered as Roman numerals yet. Reply and inform me. 

We went over graphing coordinates in math 8 and math 7 accelerated. We had to clear up some misconceptions and I fe we did. 

Via Carrie Wong, ask your self what do you notice about the coordinates in the first quadrant and so on?
