Formative Assessment

Determine the Distance:

Students are given the coordinates of three points (with the same x- or y-coordinate) and asked to determine the distance between pairs of points without graphing.

Type: Formative Assessment

Lesson Plan

Game Room Copy Cat:

In this lesson, students will learn to plot points in all four quadrants of the coordinate grid, create a game room using only polygons, and describe the points in hopes of having their partner draw the exact room which will be kept a secret until the end. It's all about giving and following instructions while applying an understanding of positive and negative numbers on the coordinate grid.
