Description: 
Line Gem 1 is a game created to help users learn how to graph linear equations on a Cartesian coordinate plane. Users pick the right linear equation so their dragon can fly the correct path to get as many gems as possible. To learn how to find points for a given linear equation users can click the "Introduction" button to access a tutorial.

Comment:  An excellent exercise in graphing linear equations. My only concern is how early do students learn about graphing nonfuntion linear equations (vertical lines) 

Lauretta 
Comment:  I like the fact that there is more than one way to score on each board and that it can be used for a wide range of possible learners. It could include the choice of more advanced functions also.

Comment:  Great tool for supplementing a current textbook.=! 

Aldana 
Comment:  It is a great visual for equations of lines and a fun game to score points for getting as many gems as possible!
Kids will get to practice and have fun at the same time.
