This activity is for students who already understand how to find the distance between two points with the same x or y coordinate using the coordinate plane, and have started to make a connection about adding and subtracting certain absolute values.
This practice sheet has larger distances away from the x and/or y axis so that they can take a step away from just counting the distance on a coordinate plane. These ordered pairs have a distance that are either vertical or horizontal from each other.
By using the given ordered pairs, find the distance between the 2 points by using absolute value. Once you find the distances in the first column, you can check to see if your answers are correct by finding its match in the second column.
