Distance Formula Triples Activity
This is an easy and interactive way for students to practice finding the length of a segment using the distance formula. There are 24 total cards in which students must find the distance of the segment. You can choose to either have students give their answer in simplest radical form, or, round their answers. Once matched, there will be 8 sets of three cards, each having the same distance.
Students can work on their own or with a partner to match the cards. They can show their work directly on the back of the card, or on a separate sheet of paper if you prefer. Once they are finished, I have my students staple their "triples" together and place in a zip-lock bag.
The letters make this super easy to grade! I included an answer key to use to ensure the correct cards and matched.
