Point-Slope Form of a Line

This activity helps young mathematicians connect the graph and the point-slope form of a line, by first solving a real-world problem and then using that example to motivate the understanding of the equation. By manipulating the gizmo, through the subscriber site, ExploreLearning.com, one discovers how changes in points change the graph of the line and the equation and then how this equation varies from the already familiar slope-intercept equation.
