Equation of a Line Game
Sergio Hannibal Mejía
Yokohama Int'l School
This is a mathematical activity designed to help students practice finding the equation of a line in slope-intercept form. It is designed to work well with interactive boards as a classroom activity. (Click the image below to go to the site http://demonstrations.wolfram.com/EquationOfALineGame/.)
About the Wolfram Demonstrations Project (from the website)...
The Wolfram Demonstrations Project was conceived by Stephen Wolfram as a way to bring computational exploration to the widest possible audience. With hundreds of interactive, open-code Demonstrations--created solely in Mathematica by users from around the world--The Wolfram Demonstrations Project brings to life ideas in math, science, and many other areas, from elementary education to front-line research. All Demonstrations, and their code, are provided free of charge and run on any computer with Mathematica 6 or the free Mathematica Player.
