The Distance Formula Test

The Pythagorean Theorem tells us about the relationship between the legs in a right triangle. We can take this information and develop a “distance formula” that enables us to find the distance between any two points on the Cartesian coordinate plane.

Test Objectives:

•Demonstrate an understanding of the Pythagorean Theorem

•Demonstrate the ability to setup the distance formula

•Demonstrate the ability to find the distance between two points
