Apply the distance formula to determine the length of a line segment when given the coordinates of the endpoints. (a)
- Reasoning, Lines, and Transformations
The student will solve problems involving symmetry and transformation. This will include a) investigating and using formulas for determining distance, midpoint, and slope; b) applying slope to verify and determine whether lines are parallel or perpendicular; c) investigating symmetry and determining whether a figure is symmetric with respect to a line or a point; and d) determining whether a figure has been translated, reflected, rotated, or dilated, using coordinate methods.
The student will use problem solving, mathematical communication, mathematical reasoning, connections, and representations to
