Distance Formula

Students create ways to find the number of square miles that lie in a triangle having vertices at A, B, and C. They compute the distance between two points and use Heron's formula to find the area of the triangle. Finally, students substitute the Pythagorean theorem to derive the distance formula and calculate the answer.
