Examples are given for the same quadrant as well as points in different quadrants.

This resource includes:

  • Set of 40 task cards with distance between two points (Horizontal and vertical lines ONLY!)
  • 20 examples with only points given
  • 20 examples with only the graph given

--Points in the Same Quadrant

19 examples: 9 vertical(5 points only and 4 graphed)

10 horizontal(5 points only and 5 graphed)

--Points in Different Quadrants

21 examples: 10 with points only and 11 graphed

  • Blank Answer Document for students to write the expression used to solve, the distance, and if the line is horizontal or vertical
  • Answer Key

Options for using this resource:

These task cards can be used in Math Centers, as individual work, or as a group activity. I print the task cards on colored paper to save ink and laminate for future use. These can be put on a key ring and used multiple times!
