Distance and Midpoint Formulas

This year, I'm jumping on the bandwagon for Interactive Notebooks.  It's a process for me, but since my students don't have textbooks it works works great (so far).

Below are some pictures of my Distance and Midpoint Formula Foldable. I got this idea for the foldable from similar one I saw in a classroom last year.  However, in the one I saw it was all handwritten by the student and it was only the formula, definition and one example for each on the inside.  I added a visual representation as well as a second example.  I also like that the students don't have to write down the examples.

In the link above you will find just one page, all you have to do in order to use this in your classroom is print it on both sides of the paper.  Then, just cut the pages in half and you are ready to rock and roll. Feel free to use any descriptions or definitions you feel will work best for your students.

As always leave a comment with any thoughts or questions and any feed back if you use this (or something similar) in your classroom! 

Happy Tuesday!

  4. I printed this out for my Geometry students, and said out loud, "oh my gosh, this is so cute!"
    I handed it out to my students today, and in both classes, girls went "oh my gosh, this is so cute!" when we folded it :) Love it! Thank you so much for sharing!

  5. I'm a substitute teacher trained as a social studies teacher and this was given to me as a lesson plan for a 55 minutes class. I found it really easy to use and fun for the students as well.

  6. Thank you for sharing, I look forward to using this tomorrow in my class.
