Represent Fractional Distance Measurement Quantities Using Diagrams
8 mins 3rd - 5th CCSS: Designed
The first lesson in a series of five, the lesson supports learners in discovering new strategies for finding fractional distances by using diagrams with measurement scales. After a review of fractions and diagrams, the common mistake of...
How Do You Figure Out the Rate Traveled if You Know Distance and Time?
4 mins 6th - 12th
If you know two values and are looking for a third, you can set up an equation and solve to find your answer. In this problem you know distance and time, and you are looking for rate of speed. Use the distance formula to set up your...
Finding the Distance Between Two Points: Lesson
4 mins 7th - 10th CCSS: Adaptable
Point out an application of Pythagoras. The segment of an essential playlist on geometry provides a quick review of the Pythagorean Theorem. Using a right triangle to show the positions of two points, the presenter calculates the...
Compare Rates of Speed by Comparing Equations that Represent the Relationship Between Distance and Time
3 mins 6th - 8th CCSS: Designed
After you have taught how to write an equation comparing distance and time, you need to show your mathematicians how to compare those equations. Based off the prior video, this lesson teaches how to use different equations to find out...
Distance Between Two Points
7 mins 9th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
How does the Pythagorean Theorem become the distance formula? The video instructor begins by explaining the application of the distance formula. She then shows graphically how the distance formula is just an extension of the Pythagorean...
Exploring the Distance Formula with the TI- Navigator
9th - 12th
High schoolers explore the distance formula. In this geometry lesson plan, students investigate the relationship between movement on the coordinate lane and cardinal directions. High schoolers explore the distance formula in terms of...
Planetary Distances on the Playground
6th - 8th CCSS: Adaptable
Earth is 149,600,000 km, or 92,957,130.4 miles, from the sun. Young astronauts create an interactive model to learn the distances between planets. Nine groups, each representing a different planet, are spread around at class-calculated...
Write an Equation that Expresses the Relationship Between Distance and Time
4 mins 6th - 8th CCSS: Designed
Equations don't always have x and y, show your learners that distance and time can be substituted for these values. Your mathematicians will be able to use the graph and table of proportional data to find the unit rate by dividing. Pause...
Distance Between Parallel Lines: Lesson
4 mins 9th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
Rely on slope when counting won't do. Using horizontal and vertical parallel lines, the presentation shows scholars how to find the distance by counting. The video uses the relationship of the slopes of perpendicular lines to find two...
Problem Solving Using Distance, Rate, Time (Running)
7 mins 6th - 9th CCSS: Adaptable
Go the extra mile to learn about distance. Scholars learn to apply the distance, rate, and time formula by watching a short YouTube video. The narrator of the video works through several examples using running contexts.
Distance = Rate x Time Application Problem
6 mins 7th - 10th CCSS: Adaptable
Superman to the rescue! But, how long will he take to get there? Given the distance that Superman is from Lois at different times, individuals determine the rate (speed) at which Superman is flying. Yet another engaging application of...
The Pythagorean Theorem, the Distance Formula, and Slope
8th - 12th
Learners explore the concept of the Pythagorean Theorem. In this Pythagorean Theorem lesson, pupils use the Pythagorean Theorem to derive the distance formula. They are given points on a coordinate grid and they find the distance between...
