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