Classify Shapes in the Coordinate Plane

Classify Shapes in the Coordinate Plane

Author: Jonathan Heeren
Description: Use coordinate geometry to represent and analyze line segments and polygons, including determining lengths, midpoints and slopes of line segments.

a) I can determine the slope of a line.

b) I can determine the distance (length) between points

    on a coordinate plane.

c) I can determine the midpoint of a segment given

    coordinates of the endpoints.

d) I can use slopes and lengths to analyze polygons.
