# Finding Distance Between Two Points Practice Book

Post Contents

I created this practice book to give my trigonometry students some much needed review of finding the distance between any two points on the coordinate plane.

I’m a rebel and chose not to teach the distance formula since it’s way easier to just use the Pythagorean Theorem instead.

Instructions for Finding the Distance Between Any Two Points on the Coordinate Plane:

We made a poof book of practice problems.  The problems I created in this book were just random points.  That was a mistake…

Here’s the first problem that ended up being a right triangle with sides of length 2 and 8.

Here are the second and third triangles with the same side lengths!!!  Note to self: Try out the problems before giving them to your students!
