Distance & Midpoint Foldable

Below are pictures and files of my distance and midpoint interactive notebook pages. I created this foldable last year with inspiration from this #MTBoS blog post: http://highschoolmathadventures.blogspot.com/. I wanted to scaffold the steps for using the distance and midpoint formulas for my special education and ELL students so I decided to make a list of steps in a hexagon-typed format.

By the end of the year, my students do not use the distance formula (only the Pythagorean Theorem). But, students are required and expected to use the distance formula, so I decided to make a foldable for review.

"2B: Derive and use the distance, slope, and midpoint formulas to verify geometric relationships, including congruence of segments and parallelism or perpendicularity of pairs of lines."



Students will write down the formula on the front of their foldable.



This is how the inside of the foldable looks like.




The next day, I am planning for students to complete the following distance and midpoint stations activity in their notebook. I love making activities that fit in our interactive notebooks so that students can reference it or take pictures of the cards and finish it at home for some extra practice.


I will be uploading the distance and midpoint stations activity on my classroom activities page: Classroom Activities Page


 Here are the following files that I used in this post:

  1. Very nice! Do you still have the activity for midpoint and distance? I can't find it on your activity page.
