Updated on 02/09/2015

Activity Overview

Beginning with horizontal or vertical segments, students show the coordinates of the endpoints and make a conjecture about the coordinates of the midpoint.

Key Steps

  • Image

    In the first problem, students construct a horizontal segment in the first quadrant using the Segment tool.

  • Image

    In problem two, students will construct a diagonal segment in the first quadrant.
