# Measure Distance on a Map

The measure distance tool is a simple way of find the distance between two points on a map. Start Clicking! Select Speed... Or choose mode of transport... How to use the Measure Distance Tool Simply click once on one point, then click again on the second point. Use the miles / km / nautical miles / yards switch to measure distances in km or in miles or nautical miles. The Quick Find text box allows you to quickly get to an area you wish without spending time zooming and panning to find it. Toggle markers will show or hide the markers if they get in the way. Clear last will remove the last point from the map Zoom to fit will zoom and pan the map to get the best fit of all your points on as large a zoom as possible. Clear Map is a reset button that will clear all points and allow you to start measuring a distance again. You can edit the position of any existing points by dragging the marker (when they are displayed) and dropping the marker in it's new position Future Ideas and Improvements

9 Strategies for Motivating Students in Mathematics | Edutopia Motivating students to be (enthusiastically) receptive is one of the most important aspects of mathematics instruction and a critical aspect of the Common Core State Standards. Effective teachers should focus attention on the less interested students as well as the motivated ones. Presented in this blog post are nine techniques, based on intrinsic and extrinsic motivation, which can be used to motivate secondary school students in mathematics. Extrinsic and Intrinsic Motivation Extrinsic motivation involves rewards that occur outside the learner's control. However, many students demonstrate intrinsic goals in their desire to understand a topic or concept (task-related), to outperform others (ego-related), or to impress others (social-related). With these basic concepts in mind, there are specific techniques which might be expanded, embellished and adapted to the teacher's personality and, above all, made appropriate for the learner's level of ability and environment. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.

what's shakin An earthquake is a sudden release of stored energy. Earthquakes occur when slow but powerful tectonic forces cause stress to build up in the Earth’s crust. When the stresses get large enough, slippage is triggered along fractures in the rock known as faults. The sudden slipping motion along a fault causes vibrations known as seismic waves to form and travel away from the zone of slippage. Several meters of slip along a large fault causes a major earthquake; a few centimeters of slip on a small fault (perhaps the size of a soccer field) would cause a small earthquake. Seismic waves that travel through the rocks of the Earth’s crust are similar to the ripples that spread across the surface of a pond after a rock splashes into the still water. Seismographs are sensitive instruments that record the vibrations of passing seismic waves.
