You Must Still Think Yourself, CAS Can Only Help

Have the class learn about and make conjectures about a line intersecting a cubic.  In this making conjectures about a line intersecting a cubic lesson, young scholars draw lines that intersect a cubic at three different points.  Students determine the sum of the intersection points.  Young scholars repeat the process for various cubics.  Students make a conjecture that the sum of the three x-values of the intersection points is always -a.
