Student use the distance formula as this activity walks them through their day at Kennywood Park, a popular amusement park located in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. Students find the distance between different attractions in the park by using the coordinate grid map. Students then convert the distance on the map to the distance in real-life, using the scale on the map. This activity also includes a few other topics through, such as finding slope, systems of equations, and area of a circle. All topics my students were familiar with prior to this activity.
Hope you enjoy!
