Have you ever wondered what Linear Equations are all about?
This app enables you to visualise graphically what happens when you change the values of m and c in the linear equation y = mx + c. The shape of the graph is a straight line. But is it always a straight line? Where does it cross the x and y axes – if at all? This and other questions can be answered using this app.
The main features of the app are:
* An interactive approach to help deepen understanding of linear equations
* Visualising the linear equation and its x/y intercepts graphically
* Zoom in/out graphically
* On-screen take-by-the-hand walkthrough to help highlight interesting mathematical features
* A linear equations calculator to calculate properties of a linear equation from chosen values for m and c.
