Students describe rectangles (with edges parallel to the axes) and triangles in the coordinate plane by means of inequalities. For example, the rectangle in the coordinate plane with lower left vertex (1,2) and upper right vertex (10,15) is {(x,y) l 1 < x < 10 & 2 < y < 15} , the triangle with vertices at (0,0), (1,3), and (2,1) is {(x,y) l x/2 < y < 3x & y < -2x + 5}.

The purpose of this task is to develop the distance formula, based upon students’ understanding of the Pythagorean theorem. In the task, students are asked to calculate distances between points using triangles, and then to formalize the process to the distance formula. At the end of the task, students will use the distance formula to find the perimeter of a hexagon.

Students are given 4-5 coordinate points, that will represent the sheep. First, they are tasked with creating a fence around the sheep. The students will use the endpoints of each piece of fence to compute the slope, y-intercept, domain and equation of the line. They will then code the rover to draw their lines. Finally, the students can calculate the area/perimeter of their fence and calculate the cost to build the fence. The students will then be challenged to minimize the area, perimeter and cost of building their corral, recalculate the equations of their lines, stating their new slope, y-intercept, and domain.
