Distance Formula

For Teachers 7th - 10th
Students calculate the distance using the correct formula. In this geometry lesson, students apply concepts of the Pythagorean Theorem and right triangles to solve problems. They solve problems involving conics and their distance or...
Lesson Planet

Ellipses And Kepler's First Law

For Teachers 9th - 12th
Students explain that planets actually orbit the center of gravity of the solar system, and that distant planets may be detected by motions of their central star around the centers of gravity of their planetary systems.
Lesson Planet

Using Technology to enhance the Connections

For Teachers 11th - 12th
Students identify the relationship between the algebraic equation:cos2 + sin2 = 1 and draw a right triangle with an central angle. They also find the "Area" and "Perimeter" use "Comment" and find the number's "Arrow" hit enter and then...
