Product Description

This is an activity using the midpoint theorem in a geometry class. It requires a tiled floor, with tape to represent coordinate axes, and a long piece of rope that students will hold when they stand in their respective midpoints on the floor. Students will solve for a midpoint, then stand at their spot when called upon in order to "connect the dots" and make shapes (a pentagon - 5 students, a hexagon - 6 students, an octagon - 8 students, and a star - 10 students).

While this is an intricate activity involving a lot of preparation, it is good for group teambuilding and establishing a good classroom atmosphere for collaboration. The activity is designed to last about 20-30 minutes, depending on skill and class size. The plans include:
