Planes with Pronghorns

Planes with Pronghorns


With an average running speed of 40 MPH, pronghorns are the fastest land mammal in North America. They can also run at speeds of up to 60 MPH for long distances. While they're running, they like to do geometry in their heads.


Through in-class activities and independent practice, students will:

  • Calculate whole number distances between two points on the Cartesian coordinate plane using the Pythagorean Theorem

  • Reflect shapes on a coordinate grid over a line of reflection

  • Transform a given shape to a target shape by dilating, rotating, translating, or reflecting
