#### How Long Is a Marathon?

## Objective

**Students will calculate distance from one point to another.****Students will calculate distance with time to determine destination point arrival.**

## Big Idea

**How can a coordinate plane be used to determine ordered pairs?****How does mathematics help us in our daily lives?**

**Warm Up/Anticipatory Students will view the video: Plotting a Point (ordered pair)**

##### Photos

**Teacher will divide class into four groups.****Teacher will give each group a city map.****Students will overlay city map on coordinate plane.****Groups will label the x-axis, y-axis and point of origin.****Groups will calculate the distance from the point of origin/starting point to the planned first water stop.****Students will also calculate rate/distance times time ran to determine how long it will it will take to get to the next stopping point.**
