Find Midpoint Formula educational ideas and activities
In this college level mathematics worksheet, students solve use the Pythagorean Theorem to find the missing side of a right triangle and explore the connection between the Pythagorean Theorem and the distance formula. Students also determine the midpoint of a line segment. The two page worksheet contains thirty-two problems. Answers are included.
In this midpoint formula worksheet, students determine the midpoint of a line by using given ordered pairs. Students use one endpoint of a line and the midpoint to find the remaining endpoint of a line. This four-page worksheet contains 30 problems. Answers are provided on the last two pages.
In this midpoint formula worksheet, students find the midpoint of line segments. Students identify the midpoint from information given on a graph and from ordered pairs representing the endpoints. They solve 14 problems on two pages. An additional two pages contain the answer key.
A short video clip shows a machine dividing a batch of dough into smaller parts. From this anticipatory activity, launch a discussion on dividing line segments into smaller parts. Working in groups, math classes investigate the midpoint of lines drawn on a coordinate plane when given the end points. They determine a formula for the process and then calculate the slope of the lines.
Students prove conjectures about geometric figures on the plane or in space using coordinate geometry. They develop fluency in operations with real numbers, vectors and matrices using mental computation or paper-and-pencil calculations for simple cases and technology for more-complicated cases. Pupils determine the level of accuracy needed for computations involving measurement and irrational numbers.
Students use the Pythagorean formula to find the length of a line. Afterward, they explore the midpoint formula to determine the midpoint of a line with a non-zero slope on a coordinate plane. Students complete assigned problems and locate the distance between two points and the midpoint between the two points.
Students explore the concept of cubic functions. In this cubic functions lesson, students graph cubic functions on their calculator. Students determine the local maximum and minimum points and the tangent line from the x-intercept to a point on the cubic function. Students graph various shifts in the cubic function and describe its' max. and min. points.
Here is a set of lessons that explore conics in a number of different ways. Starting with modeling how a conic is produced by the way a plane cuts the cone, to solving complex word problems, algebra learners progress through a series of lessons. Problems include topics of projectile motion,eccentricity, and locating foci points. It also includes extensions for remediation and enrichment.
Middle and high schoolers solve and complete 29 various types of problems. First, they match each name with its correct formula. Then, students find the length of the missing side and the distance between the two points given. In addition, they classify the triangles with the given side lengths as acute, right, or obtuse.
Ninth graders investigate quadrilaterals. In this geometry lesson, 9th graders examine and classify quadrilaterals using the slope, midpoint and distance formulas. Additionally, students create various quadrilaterals given three point and the conditions that determine the location of the fourth vertex.
