Airplanes and Airstrips, Part 2

Table the decision to land. Pupils form flight crews by matching up different representations of linear equations. Given a set of coordinates for an airstrip, the crews determine the equation of the line that will position their planes for a straight landing. The teams then create a comic strip to describe how to find the equation of a line from a table of values.
