The Eat or be Eaten Game
The goal is to help the bird protect its nest by providing it with the equation of the line that contains both the bird and the nest. If you provide the correct equation, the bird will reach the nest and stop the snake from eating the chicks. If the line misses either the bird or the nest, then the snake will feast on one of your chicks. Here is what you must do:
Click on the "Next
Enter the equation of
the line that contains both the bird and the nest. Click on the
question mark and hit the backspace key to begin entering the equation.
The coordinates of both the bird and the nest are provided. You can
enter lines in fraction form such as:
-3/4x+ 2/3 or 3x - 4
or in decimal form such as:
Click on the "Graph"
The "Help" button will take you to a page that has two examples of finding the equation of a line. If you want to, you can click here to see these two examples now so that you are ready to protect your chicks.
