The original idea for creating this applet comes from Steve Phelps' Graph the Line applet.

**Directions:**1) Examine the equation shown on the right side of the screen. 2)**Reposition the 2 big points so that the line is the graph of the displayed equation.**3) Click the "Check Answer" checkbox to check.**If you're correct, the applet will inform you.****If you're not, you'll know this as well.**If you're not correct, keep trying until you position the gray line correctly. 4) After correctly graphing the line, click the "Generate New Line" button.**Repeat steps (1) - (4) as many times as you need until you've mastered this concept.**
