Use coordinates to compute perimeters of polygons and areas of triangles and rectangles, e. If there's one thing that mathematicians love, it's efficiency. And the distance formula is nothing if not efficient. It is so efficient that while we're going the distance, we can even go for speed.

Students are expected to be able to use the distance formula to find the distance between two coordinate points and then apply that information and know-how to calculate the perimeter and area of various polygons. They should note that the distance formula is derived from the Pythagorean theorem.

We suggest squaring both sides of the distance formula so it's a little easier to see that both equations set the sum of two squared terms equal to a third squared term. Basically, the distance formula assumes that the distance we're measuring is the hypotenuse of a right triangle. The base of the triangle is denoted as aor x 2 — x 1. And the hypotenuse, cis the distance, D. Now that that's all cleared up, let's go watch some E!

As one might expect, the distance formula is pretty handy for computing the distance between two coordinate points.

Of course, it's best saved for when those points are not located along the same vertical or horizontal, because then simple subtraction would be the most efficient way to find the distance between them. No, the distance formula is more aptly used when the points are spaced diagonally. Students should know that if we compute the distances between the points around a polygon, then the distances can be added to find the polygon's perimeter. Students should know that this works for all polygons.

Area is a little different, since it depends on the actual shape. Students should know that pretty much all polygons on the coordinate plane can be split into rectangles and triangles.

As such, students should know how to calculate the areas of rectangles and triangles. Adding the areas of the individual pieces should give them the area of the entire shape.

We recommend giving students a variety of shapes so they can apply their knowledge and problem-solving skills rather than automatically plugging points into a formula. If students are ever confused, they can always plot points on the coordinate plane, too.

## Unit #4 G.GPE.A.1 - G.GPE.B.7

Ah, the circle. The basis of so many delicious baked goods: donuts, pies, cookies, and cakes. Always regular and similar to all of its circle friends. It tries so hard to fit in with the crowd, and yet we insist on labeling it, giving it an equation, shoving it into a degree oven for 12 to 14 minutes, and trying our hardest to let it cool before cramming its deliciousness down our gullets. You're right, that does look eerily familiar. Wouldn't it be great if that was all the students needed to know?

If only it were that simple. So actually, comparing it to the Pythagorean theorem comes in quite handy after all. This circle is centered at 2, 3 with a radius 10, meaning that students have to adjust the left side of the standard circle equation. The adjustment should reflect how we would have to move the circle so that it is centered on the origin; in this case, two to the left and down three. To find the radius, students can draw a right triangle inside the circle and use the Pythagorean theorem to find the length of the hypotenuse.

It just so happens that the hypotenuse is also the radius of our circle. If students are having a hard time remembering whether to do add or subtract their h 's and k 's, they can simply think, "How would I move the center to the origin? Perhaps your students find themselves in the lucky situation of having been given an equation and told to find the center and radius of the circle that equation describes.

They will need to start by completing the square in the equation so that they can convert it into the standard form. If they are having a hard time solving these kinds of problems, they might need a quick refresher on how to complete the square. Also, they should note that they're actually completing two squares, since both x and y are squared.

For a standard about circles, we're sure using a lot of squares. This equation reflects a center of 4, -3 and a radius of 2. Answer A is incorrect because the right side is r rather than r 2. The signs in C are reversed and would give a circle with center -4, 3. Answer D is also incorrect because the signs are reversed on h and kand the subtraction sign should be addition.

The x and y variables are reversed in Band C is incorrect because the x and y variables are negative, not positive, and the radius was not squared. Just the same, the right side of the equation in D is incorrect because the radius was not squared either. What is the equation for the circle centered on R with radius RS?Comparing Numbers.

The students will drag the endpoints of the side that is opposite the common angle to discover the conditions that make the nested triangles similar. When students make congruent angle marks appear, the triangles will be similar.

**G-SRT.C.7 Worksheet #1 - Sine & Cosine Relationships**

We use the distance formula, the coordinate grid and Heron's Formula to determine areas of various shapes. Area is a concept that is found everywhere and so this is just another context for it. When shapes are placed on a grid we gain a number of new techniques in discovering their areas.

Not a lot of issues here Area is a very familiar concept and apply those concepts to the coordinate grid don't make it much harder. As I have said on almost every objective in this unit Area is everywhere!!

We connect it to an earlier unit where we introduced many area formulas and relationships to calculate volumes. Area continues from here as well for example in calculus we calculate the area under a curve to help us determine lots of different things. Volume is always connected to area. This is quite an easy concept to teach especially because we already handled in earlier in the year.

The only thing that slows them down again is the errors found in the distance formula or in Heron's Formula. The truth is once you learn the 'Box' technique It is just too simple.
