The midpoint formula - which Sal maintains is "silly to memorize" since you simply average - is the focus of this video. Viewers will appreciate the seamless transition between algebraic and geometric concepts in this lecture.
In this geometry instructional activity students use the midpoint formula to determine the midpoint of a line segment given the end points. The one page instructional activity contains eight problems. Answers provided.
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.
For 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 activity, 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.
Students compute the midpoint between two points on a coordinate grid. They find the mean of two whole numbers and describe the meaning of the term "mean." Students move from two single numbers to computing the midpoint of two points on the Cartesian plane.
For this distance and midpoint formulas worksheet, 9th graders solve and complete 10 different problems. First, they find the distance between given coordinate and write their answer in simplest radical form. Then, students find the distance between two given points. In addition, they find the midpoint between the given points.
In this distance and midpoint formulas activity, 9th graders solve and complete 10 different problems. First, they find the distance between the given coordinates and write their answer in simplest radical form. Then, students find the midpoint between the given coordinates.
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.
In this geometry worksheet, 10th graders use the midpoint formula to calculate the midpoint of a line segment given a pair of coordinates. There are 8 questions with an answer key.
Students study how coordinates in space are used to produce special effects in movies. They locate a point in space, and then use the distance and midpoint formulas to find points in space.
Students derive the distance formula using the Pythgorean theorem. In this geometry lesson, students calculate the midpoint formula and use it to find the distance.
Students explore the concept of quadrilaterals. In this quadrilaterals lesson, students use the slope formula, midpoint formula, and distance formula to justify that a given quadrilateral is a parallelogram.
The midpoint of a line segment can be found using the ordered pair of each endpoint and dividing by 2. Not sure what that means? Watch this video to see the graph of a line segment and see how the teacher uses a formula to find the midpoint of this given line segment. The formula can be used to find the midpoint of any line segment.
Having a good working knowledge of math vocabulary is especially important for geometry learners. Here are 119 pages worth of wonderfully constructed definitions, constructions, formulas, properties, theorems, and postulates. This is a fantastic geometry resource that you can use throughout the school year.
- Display cards and change them out as you progress through different topics
- Use the cards as review throughout the year to remind students of past learning
- Laminate the cards and allow students to sort them into topics they definitely understand, somewhat understand, and don't yet understand
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.
In this distance and midpoint learning exercise, 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.
In this math activity, students find the midpoint of lines. They first mark and identify the ordered pair of the midpoint of drawn lines. Students use the midpoint formula to find the midpoints of twelve lines.
In this distance and midpoint formulas learning exercise, students solve 5 multiple choice problems. Students find the midpoint given two sets of ordered pairs. Students find the shortest or largest distance between a set of points.
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.
