#### Finding the Distance Between Two Points: Lesson

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...

Lesson Planet

#### Distance Between Two Points

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...

Lesson Planet

#### Midpoint and Distance Foldable

Support young mathematicians with learning the concepts of midpoint and distance with this foldable resource. Offering both graphic examples and written equations, this reference clearly demonstrates for students how these key terms...

Lesson Planet

#### Going the Distance

Show your class why the shortest distance between two points is a straight line. Pupils review the use of the Pythagorean Theorem to find the length of a missing side of a right triangle. Working in small groups, the scholars devise the...

Lesson Planet

#### Talking About Distance, Rate and Time

Connect the tortoise and the hare fable to mathematics. Learners first identify key terms related to distance, rate, and time. They then solve distance/rate/time problems using different representations.

Lesson Planet

#### Distances

How can you determine the distance between two objects when one is incredibly far away? Discover how early astronomers and mathematicians calculated quantities such as the distance between Earth and the Sun in an insightful video. The...

Lesson Planet

#### Midpoint and Distance Formulas

The shortest distance between two points is a straight line. Learners use the Pythagorean Theorem to develop a formula to find that distance. They then find the midpoint using an average formula.

Lesson Planet

#### Distance = Rate x Time Application Problem

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...

Lesson Planet

#### Problem Solving Using Distance, Rate, Time (Running)

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.

Lesson Planet

#### Distance-Time and Velocity-Time Graphs

It's story time! Show your class how to use a distance-time graph to tell a story. They learn to draw and analyze a graph using distance and time data. The story then continues to compare velocity and time.

Lesson Planet

#### Distance Between Parallel Lines: Lesson

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...

Lesson Planet

#### Pythagorean Theorem to Determine Distance: Neighborhood Map

Find the distance between various locations in a neighborhood. Scholars use the interactive to find distances between locations on a map. The map is overlaid onto a grid to provide coordinates for each location, and pupils apply...

Lesson Planet

#### Distance Formula: Right Triangles

Go the distance with a far out resource. Individuals use an interactive to create right triangles on a coordinate plane to help find distance between two points. Challenge questions aid them in developing the distance formula.

Lesson Planet

#### Stopping Distances

In 2016, one in every four fatal car crashes listed speeding as a contributing factor. Pupils view videos of a car trying to come to a quick stop from four different rates of speed. They use context clues to measure and determine the...

Lesson Planet

#### Math in Fencing: Distance as a Variable

Out lunge the opponent. Fencing uses math in determining distances between opponents. An installment of the Math at the Core: Ratios series shows how to use variables to write an expression to show the distance a fencer must cover to...

Lesson Planet

#### Shortest Distance between Line and Point

A short video shows how to find the shortest distance between a line and a point on the coordinate plane. Using the fact the shortest distance is the perpendicular, the presenter shows the class how to find the intersection of the two...

Lesson Planet

#### Speed, Distance, Time

Speed up your learning of distance, rate, and time problems. Future mathematicians view a video to review how to determine distance, rate, or time, given the other two quantities. They watch as the narrator works through several examples.

Lesson Planet

#### Distance and Special Relativity: How Far Away is Tomorrow?

The confusing negative properties of time and distance are clarified, quickly and succinctly, in a super-short clip. Make this a part of your presentation on the speed of light, or special relativity.

Lesson Planet

#### The Cosmic Distance Ladder: Parallax

Scientists don't have a ruler long enough to measure to the stars, so they rely on math. Scholars learn to calculate the distance from Earth to a star using the parallax method. They use angle measures from different perspectives to...

Lesson Planet

#### Size and Distance in Space

Pupils explore objects in space in terms of their distance and size. They learn how to write and interpret exponential notation, how distances are related to time and about light years, and apply all of this knowledge to objects in the...

#### Absolute Value—Magnitude and Distance

Do you want to use the resource? Absolutely. Scholars learn about absolute value and its relation to magnitude and distance on a number line. They compare numbers in context by applying absolute value.

EngageNY

#### Distance on the Coordinate Plane

Scholars learn how to find the distance of vertical and horizontal line segments on the coordinate plane in the 19th installment of a 21-part module. The use of absolute value comes in handy.

Lesson Planet

#### Distance and Displacement

Are the distance an object travels and the same object's displacement the same? Here is a activity that addresses this commonly miss-answered question. Through discussion, observation, and an activity, scholars learn to recognize the...
