Comment: I think this a great teaching tool as it provides hints and instructional support as the student attempts to use the applet. For example, if you get the y-intercept number correct but did not take into account if it was potitive or negative, it will tell you to focus on the sign. Also if you get the slope mixed up for run over rise instead of the correct format it will hint at correcting for "rise over run". A great tool for any level of education.
