Illuminations: Printing Books
Students explore the relationships among lines, slopes, and y-intercepts in the context of printing their algebra textbooks.

Students use a spreadsheet to facilitate their exploration. This activity is based on an idea from Navigating Through Algebra in Grades 6-8 (NCTM, 2001).
