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.
Using a longitude and latitude map that relates to the coordinate grid and job description cards that come with places to travel to, young mathematical travelers use the distance formula and The Pythagorean Theorem to answer questions and report on their travels and overall cost. Students use specific websites to gather information.
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.
