 Students sketch the regions, determine points of intersection (vertices), and use the distance formula to calculate perimeter and the “shoelace” formula to determine area of these regions. Students...

 Student Outcomes: Students recognize parallel and perpendicular lines from slope. Students create equations for lines satisfying criteria of the kind: “Contains a given point and is parallel/...

 Student Outcomes: Students state the relationship between previously used formats for equations for lines and the new format a1x + a2y + c, recognizing the segments from (0,0) to (a1, a2) as a normal...

 Student Outcomes: Students generalize the criterion for perpendicularity of two segments that meet at a point to any two segments in the Cartesian plane. Students apply the criterion to determine if...

 Student Outcomes: Students explain the connection between the Pythagorean Theorem and the criterion for perpendicularity.

 The challenge of programming robot motion along segments parallel or perpendicular to a given segment leads to an analysis of slopes of parallel and perpendicular lines. Students write equations for...
