Students will use midpoint, distance, and slope formulas to determine whether quadrilaterals are parallelograms, rhombuses, squares, rectangles, trapezoids, and/or kites.
Stations mazes are great because they get students up and moving around the room. They also encourage students to check their work carefully since an incorrect answer will eventually send them back to a problem they have already solved. Successfully completing the maze requires students to slow down and check their work.
This activity can be completed individually or in pairs. A student answer sheet is included. Two versions of the maze are included: color and black and white. The differences are shown in the thumbnails.
The problems require using the distance, midpoint, and slope formulas a few times per problem. Because of this, there are six stations. This enables students to finish the activity within one class period with enough time to go over the problems as a class. A student answer sheet is included with coordinate grids, to help students organize their work and plot the points in the problems.
The problems are of various difficulty. Make sure these problems are appropriate for your students - download the preview and look at the thumbnails to see problem examples.
