Cartesian Coordinates: Map Distances and Coordinates Mini-Project
is a mini-adventure that applies Cartesian map distances. Students first “travel” with their pirate companion. Students determine the path they will take, record distances and “sights” as they travel building a travel log. Students then create their own adventure and map. A big hit with students!
Multiple ways to use:
- Set up at a math-center with other cartesian coordinate and map distance activities
- Differentiate by providing to individual students
- Use as an assessment. How well do students understand how to identify coordinates on a Cartesian system and use these coordinates to determine distances?
Are you in a digital or 1:1 classroom? Find the digital version of this cartesian coordinates mini-project here.
For extra practice and assessment, you can have students use task cards for a scavenger hunt such as:
- Cartesian Coordinates: Practice and Review
- Cartesian Coordinates: Find the Distance
A great addition to your middle school math curriculum
and for differentiation.
This guide includes:
- Teacher guide
- Student handouts for engaging in activity
- Student handouts for creating their own adventure
