2 Apps

 

App 1 - Graphing a General Form Equation (using y = mx + b): Each question in this app gives the general form equation of the line. Before graphing the line, convert the equation from general form to slope-intercept form. As you drag the cursor over the grid, it will change color over points that exist on the line (grid verticies only). Click to lock in the point. When all possible points on the grid are locked in, the line will automatically be drawn.

 

 

App 2 - Graphing a General Form Equation (using x & y intercepts): Each question in this app gives the general form equation of the line. Before graphing the line, calculate the x & y intercepts. As you drag the cursor over the grid, it will change color over the intercepts. Click to lock in the intercept. When both intercepts are locked in, the line will automatically be drawn.
