Distances Between Stars
In this distance between stars activity, students use the 3-dimensional distance formula and Cartesian coordinates to find the distances of 10 given stars from the sun. They also determine which constellation each star belongs to and the distance from Polaris.

Geometric Figures Review
In this geometric figures review learning exercise, 10th graders solve and complete 100 various types of problems reviewing various sections of geometry. First, they determine the perimeter of a triangle and name its collinear points. Then, students identify and name various types of polygons with corresponding sides.
Middle and high schoolers solve 14 problems that include finding the distance between two points in different situations. First, they refer to a number line to find the measure of each point on the line. Then, pupils refer to the coordinate plane shown to find each measure and round the answers to the nearest hundredth.
8th - 10th Math
Length of a Line Segment - Distance
Pupils determine the distance between two given points. They use the distance formula to determine line length, as well as the length of the radius of a circle. The Pythagorean Theorem may also be used to determine line length. This one-page worksheet contains ten problems.
8th - 9th Math
Lines Parallel to a Side of a Triangle
Your geometry learners will thoroughly explore the Side-Splitting Theorem and how a line, parallel to one of the sides of a triangle, splits the other two sides proportionally. They then collaborate to complete three exploratory tasks involving geometric construction, Geometers Sketch Pad, and distance formula on a graph in the coordinate plane, to write a conjecture and test it.

New Review Midpoint and Distance Foldable
Support young mathematicians with learning the concepts of midpoint and distance with this foldable resource. Offering both graphic examples and written equations, this reference clearly demonstrates for students how these key terms apply to number lines and the coordinate plane.
7th - 11th Math CCSS: Adaptable
Partitioning a Directed Line Segment
Your geometry learners will find the point that partitions a directed segment on a coordinate grid into a given ratio using geometric construction tools, the proportional nature of similar triangles, and the distance formula. In their collaborative teams they will write and justify conjectures based on their explorations involving similar triangles.
9th - 11th Math CCSS: Designed
Seventh graders use the distance formula to calculate the speed at which they walk and run and compare the two speeds. Students work in pairs to solve a problem for a box company (rectangular prism, volume and surface area). Students work in groups to solve area of triangle problems relating to a drum corp flag team.
Glencoe - Distance and Midpoint
For this distance and midpoint worksheet, students solve 5 multiple choice problems. Students find the distance between two points in the coordinate plane. Students find the midpoint of a segment using the midpoint formula. Students find the perimeter of a figure using distance formula.
