Product Description
I am extremely happy to offer the following math lab on The Distance Formula!

* Students are instructed to use their imagination and chart the path of a tornado that picks up a house in the New Orleans area and puts it down in the southern Florida area.

* The longitude and latitude coordinates of the tornado's path are provided on a table

* A tracking map is provided for students to transfer the data from the table to the map.

* Students calculate the distance between the starting point and the ending point of the tornado's travels in degrees.

* Students change the distance from degrees to kilometers.

* Students answer five analysis questions related to the distance and the use of the distance formula in the lab.

* This activity is aligned with the CC Standards

* Students totally enjoy working this lab either independently or with a partner.

* The lab can be followed up with a homework assignment where students locate an additional tornado or hurricane and submit their calculated distances and other interesting findings.

* Please enjoy!
