This lesson begins with a pre-assessment on the concepts of scale, scale factor, and units of measurement. The main activity has students cutting and matching individual "Trip Tix" maps (permission given by AAA) with the actual distances in miles and kilometers. Students must accurately measure the highlighted map distances and use the map scale to determine the distance traveled on each map. There is one card that does not have a distance and students must calculate the actual distance. Lastly, there is a post assessment that is similar to the pre-assessment in order to check for student understanding.
