In this interactive, students use logic and mathematical skill to place aquatic animals at locations on a Cartesian graph with cardinal directions. Then, they determine both the vertical and horizontal distances between points. The riddles in the interactive, including one that requires an understanding of rate, have randomized values so that students can practice placing points at different locations and calculating different distances. The accompanying classroom activity provides a review of concepts related to determining the distances between points on a Cartesian graph and a response sheet to help students work with the interactive. This resource is part of the Math at the Core: Middle School Collection.
