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 worksheet students use the midpoint formula to determine the midpoint of a line segment given the end points.  The one page worksheet contains eight problems.  Answers provided. 
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 derive the distance formula  using the Pythgorean theorem. In this geometry lesson plan, students calculate the midpoint formula and use it to find the distance.
High schoolers explore the concept of quadrilaterals. In this quadrilaterals lesson plan, students use the slope formula, midpoint formula, and distance formula to justify that a given quadrilateral is a parallelogram.
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 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 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.
In 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 worksheet, 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.
Students will find the midpoint of the line between two given points. Answers will be expressed as ordered pairs. Coordinates will be rounded to the nearest tenth if necessary.
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 apply definitions and theorems to verify special quadrilaterals using coordinate geometry. They apply the slope formula, the midpoint formula, and the distance formula to justify that a given quadrilateral is a parallelogram. Answer Key included.
Learners 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 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 calculate the midpoint of a line. In this geometry activity, students identify the different parts of the coordinate plane. They use the midpoint formula to find the middle of segments between a pair of coordinates.
Through learning about cubic functions, 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.
Ninth graders identify quadrilaterals and label the vertices of quadrilaterals. they justify their identification of the quadrilaterals. Students work in groups to identify and create quadrilaterals
