Unit 3, Lesson 19# Problem Solving and the Coordinate Plane

EngageNY 45 min(s)

Students solve problems related to the distance between points that lie on the same horizontal or vertical line. Students use the coordinate plane to graph points, line segments, and geometric shapes in the various quadrants and then use the absolute value to find the related distances. Students extend their knowledge about finding distances between points on the coordinate plane to the associated lengths of line segments and sides of geometric figures. In the coordinate plane, find the distance between the points using absolute value.
