3. Numberline Multiplication

This sketch is under construction. You are invited to experiment with it, and to come up with your own ideas about students might use it to explore multiplication, ratios, and proportions.

4. Zooming Numberlines

On each of the four pages, estimate the location of the point and then zoom into its neighborhood to get a closer look. Keep making new predictions as you zoom.

5. The Curious Case of the *mxb* Dynagraph

What do you notice, and wonder, about page 1?

What do you think about the additional clues on the other pages?

9. Triple-Numberline Solver

On page 1, drag point `x` and observe the behavior of `2(x + 1)` on the second numberline and `3(x – 1)` on the third numberline. How can the numberlines help you solve `2(x+1) – 6 = 3(x – 1)?` Try solving the equations on pages 2 and 3. What is different about them? Create your own equations on page 4.

10. Play the m-x-b Game

Each of the ten challenges describes the motion of a function's dependent variable. Your job is to set `m` and `b` to produce that motion.
