Ratings and Reviews

Great app for Algebra teachers and students

Mcharle28

A game like battleship that asks the user to apply their knowledge of the slope-intercept form to identify the equation of a line to find a submarine's path. They can learn what happens when they use sliders to change the slope and y-intercept of a line. They also develop problem solving strategies to increase their score as they practice these vital algebra skills. A game a skillful teacher can use with their students to develop conceptual mathematical understanding.
