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...
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
Students explore the distance formula. For this geometry lesson, students investigate the relationship between movement on the coordinate lane and cardinal directions. Students explore the distance formula in terms of the Pythagorean...
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...
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...
The Distance Formula and Marching Nonviolently for Social Change
9th - 12th
Students explore the distance formula using real world data from nonviolent marches for social change. In this secondary mathematics lesson, students investigate the marches of Gandhi and King using maps overlaid with a coordinate...
