This worksheet will require students to practice finding the slope, midpoint, and distance for ten pairs of points. Great for a quick review, warm up, or homework assignment.
Correlation to the Common Core:
CCSS.Math.Content.8.G.B.8 Apply the Pythagorean Theorem to find the distance between two points in a coordinate system.
CCSS.Math.Content.HSG-GPE.B.6 Find the point on a directed line segment between two given points that partitions the segment in a given ratio.
CCSS.Math.Content.HSG-GPE.B.7 Use coordinates to compute perimeters of polygons and areas of triangles and rectangles, e.g., using the distance formula.★
Prerequisite to: CCSS.Math.Content.HSG-GPE.B.5 Prove the slope criteria for parallel and perpendicular lines and use them to solve geometric problems (e.g., find the equation of a line parallel or perpendicular to a given line that passes through a given point).
