Lesson 3 of 3

Lesson 3 of 3

## Objective: SWBAT determine missing coordinates given points.

## Big Idea: You've found slope before, given two points. But what if I gave you one point and the slope? Could you find the other point?

Subject(s):

Math, Graphing (Algebra), Algebra, modeling, slope (Linear Equations), 8th grade, slopes, geometric figure

#### Warm Up

*10 min*

Today's Warm Up task consists of a single problem that requires students to interpret a geometric figure in a graph, and, apply their understanding of slope.

It is derived from EngageNY's materials on sample tasks related the 8th grade Common Core standards. I like it because it can be solved using both the methods we learned in previous days, as well as similar triangles. Kids generally stick to the method we use, but 1-2 kids per class can see the similar triangles work, especially when prompted.
