Analyzing Distance Algebraically

Unit 4: Pythagorean Theorem
Lesson 7 of 10

Objective: Students will be able to apply the Pythagorean theorem to find the length of a diagonal line segment on a graph.

Big Idea: Some students would rather use coordinates and formulas, than measure distance on a diagram. I like to offer both as an option.
