This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 7, Unit 5, Grade 7. In this activity, students see that this can be done by subtracting the x or y-coordinates for the points. Students continue to work with the distinction between distance (which is unsigned) and difference (which is signed). This prepares them finding the slope of a line and the diagonal distance between points in grade 8.
