Students will review using the midpoint formula to find a missing endpoint on a line segment. This question requires that students know how to use the formula, and then how to work backwards with the formula to find a missing endpoint.
You can review the Do Now, and discuss the plan for the activity for Around the World which is explained in the video narrative in the next section and in the resource video.
This Photo shows students actively and positively participated in reviewing for our Unit 1 test. It was a beautiful day out and we went out into the school's courtyard to complete this activity. I find that by giving students a built-in break by changing stations, my students tend to be more focused on tasks at hand.
For example, Kevin*, one of my students who struggles to pay attention in a seated, traditional classroom setting, actively discussed each question with his partners and completed all the problems for review. At the end of the activity Kevin told me, "I would have never been able to do all those questions just sitting down in class. I would have fallen asleep! It's good that we had a chance to move around, I think it helped me to focus more."

Activity/Homework: Students can work on the Review Packet for the remainder of the class, and finish this for their homework tonight.
Exit Ticket: Students will complete an exit ticket that asks students to define and draw a picture of three key vocabulary words. This is a great chance also for you to brainstorm with students all of the possible words that could be asked on the assessment for this unit. This is a great chance to go back and review flashcards with students or to reinforce key vocabulary in this unit.
