Finding the midpoint and distance between two points: "doodle notes" -
When students color or doodle in math class, it activates both hemispheres of the brain at the same time. There are proven benefits of this cross-lateral brain activity:
- new learning
- relaxation (less math anxiety)
- visual connections
- better memory & retention of the content!
Students fill in the sheets, answer the questions, and color, doodle or embellish. Then, they can use it as a study guide later on.
- midpoint formula
- why it works (averages)
- distance formula
- why it works (connection to Pythagorean Theorem)
- Examples to try finding midpoint and distance using each formula
