This Partitioning a Directed Line Segment lesson plan also includes:
Your geometry learners will find the point that partitions a directed segment on a coordinate grid into a given ratio using geometric construction tools, the proportional nature of similar triangles, and the distance formula. In their collaborative teams they will write and justify conjectures based on their explorations involving similar triangles. Finally, your learners find the ratio of the two parts of a segment that is created by a given partitioning point.
- Includes optional extensions for students that need an additional challenge
