C. Distance between two points on a coordinate plane
Move endpoints C & D so that CD (the distance between the 2 pts - which is equal to the length of segment CD) is equal to EF. You will fill in the table located below the grid. You will also answer some questions & make some observations
1. The ∆x and ∆y for the pair of pts. in these examples were never equal to zero. What are your take aways?
2. What did we need to do in order to get the length of the segments in these examples? (FYI - the length of a segment and the distance between two points will be equal).
3. Is there another way to get the distance between two points on a coordinate plane? Explain.
