Worksheet - Distances in the Coordinate Plane
Middle and high schoolers explore the distance formula. In this geometry lesson, learners determine the length of a segment with the distance formula and the Pythagorean Theorem. They explore the relationship between the two methods of determining segment length.
Young scholars solve real life situation using the Pythagorean Theorem. In this geometry instructional activity, students calculate the length, midpoint and slope of segments. They solve word problems using properties of square roots.
Distance Word Problems
In this lesson, algebra learners explore distance using the formula D=RT. They start building up techniques to solve problems with motion in opposite directions, the same direction, and round trip.
La Toteca- A Tropical Paradise
Students collect data on the time of the ferry. In this algebra instructional activity, students use the data to predict a ferry schedule. They also compute the depth where oxygen would be needed when diving.
Calculating Distances in Two and Three Dimensions
Students use the Pythagorean Theorem to solve problems. In this geometry lesson plan, students solve for the distances by calculating the different parts of the shape of a two and three dimensional shape. They reason by analogy.
Going the Distance for Circles
Students watch a multimedia presentation to examine the definition of the first conic section, a circle. They design a brochure based on the information presented in the presentation. They include the definition of a circle, its center and the radius.
Worksheet 1 - Equation of a Line
In this equation of a line worksheet, students determine the equation of a line, use the distance formula to identify the relationship between two moving objects, and solve inequalities algebraically. This two-page worksheet contains seven multi-step problems.
Applications of Parabolas

New! Using Linear Equations to Define Geometric Solids
Making the transition from two-dimensional shapes to three-dimensional solids can be difficult for many geometry students. This comprehensive lesson starts with writing and graphing linear equations to define a bounded region and calculating the areas and perimeters of the space. Using this as a base, the lesson then has learners revolve these regions to create solid figures and calculate the resulting volume. A real-world example using a bowling ball and visualization software caps off this in-depth instruction.
