Included in this zip folder are 7 PDF files. 3 are for instruction and 4 are assignments. A description of each is below.

The goals of these activities:

1. Use the distance formula

2. Understand the link between the distance formula and the Pythagorean Theorem.

3. Begin to see the link between the distance formula and the equation of a circle.

PDF Instruction File #1- This is a 66 page presentation. The emphases are the goals above. Formative assessment questions are asked about:

1. Distances on a number line with constants

2. Distances on a number line with variables

3. Vertical distances

4. Horizontal distances

5. Order of subtraction with distances

6. Absolute Value

7. Radius of a circle

8. Pythagorean Theorem

PDF Instruction file #2 is the same as Instruction file #1. It is on smaller slides, 6 per page. There is a total of 11 pages.

PDF Instruction File #3- This is a 2 page file. The emphases is deriving the distance formula from the Pythagorean Theorem. There are some full example problems for display.

PDF Assignment file #1- This is a 20 question Assignment. The emphasis is subtracting to find distances and linking the formula to the Pythagorean Theorem. It is on 1 page for easy printing.

PDF Assignment file #2- This is a 20 question Assignment. The emphasis is subtracting to find distances and linking the formula to the Pythagorean Theorem. There is a question about a radius of a circle and when to use the distance formula instead of just subtracting. It is on 1 page for easy printing.

PDF Assignment file #3- This is a 24 question Assignment. The emphasis is using the distance formula to find distances on the plane and just given points. 7 problems are about radii and diameters of circles. It is on 1 page for easy printing.

PDF Assignment file #4- This is a 25 question Assignment. The emphasis is using the distance formula to find distances on the plane and just given points. Also, students are asked to find missing coordinates given a distance. It is on 1 page for easy printing.
