Today we started Unit 5 - Geometric and Algebraic Connections. We reviewed what a midpoint is. A midpoint is the middle of a line segment. It divides a line segment into two equal parts. To calculate a midpoint, you need two coordinate points (x1, y1) & (x2, y2). You will either be given the two coordinate points, or you will be given a coordinate plane with a line segment. If you are given a line segment, you will have to determine the coordinate points for the two endpoints.
To calculate the midpoint,
1) add the two x values & then divide by 2 to get the x-value of the midpoint
2) add the two y values & then divide by 2 to get the y-value of the midpoint
