A really nice Tarsia activity where students work together to match up coordinates and midpoints. Should provoke some good discussion and group work.

A very useful starting point, thank you! I'm going to adapt it slightly to include some more points which lie in different quadrants as a challenge for my more confident Year 7s - I find this is when they tend to make more mistakes.

A brilliant tarsia which requires students to find the midpoint of two co-ordinates, some answers are negatives and decimals. This would make an excellent activity at any stage of the lesson, it allows you to find out a lot about the students' understanding since they are discussing the process. It could be used at KS4 both higher and foundation as well as A-level. Thank you for sharing.
