Having Fun Distance Midpoint., Teacher Idea
Having Fun with Distance and Midpoint.
"How do you take a topic that isn’t overly exciting and get the kids to have fun with it? I have found that getting students out of their seats and working with friends usually does the trick!"
"Today I am sharing an activity on the distance and midpoint formulas:
• Give each student an ordered pair card and worksheet (download links are below)
• Have them grab a partner, find the distance and midpoint between their point and their partner’s point and then “check” their work by graphing the ordered pairs and seeing if their answers make sense.
• Have them repeat with 2 other partners.
• Challenge early finishers (or everyone) to then grab another partner. Let their point be an endpoint and their partner’s point be the midpoint. They need to find the other endpoint."
