In this activity students will discover the general formula of the number of line segments formed given the number of points on a line.
seven lines are given in this worksheet for students to work and discover the pattern and name the line segments in each line.
guided questions are followed, to let them think as the number of points increases how many line segments are formed. the aim of this activity is to let student discover the general formula of the number of segments formed given the number of points on a line.
A great activity that can be added in your Geometry or Math class. This also gives students a deep understanding about points, line segments and line.
It is recommended to group your students into 3 or by pairs to have them work together and have mathematical discourse.
I hope this worksheet activity will help in your math class :)
