Tool: Vertical Line Test
Tool Thumbnail

Go to: (opens a new window)
Description: This activity allows users to attempt to build functions, curves that pass the vertical line test. Students roll dice to create 5 points, then they try to connect the 5 points to create a function. If it is not possible, they click on Not possible, and get feedback. If it is a function, the applet says, "Your graph passes the vertical line test." It is easy to reset and then get five new points. There are some exploration questions that can be found under "What".
