9 Ball! -- A simulation game

Published on 10/17/2008

Activity Overview

Students are to find the linear equations that go through pool balls on a 9 ball pool table using the 'cue' ball and the 'pockets' of the pool table to line up the linear equations.

They are to use linear functions in the point-slope form of y=m(x - x1) + y1.

Before the Activity

Download all files and send the .tns file to the students' handhelds.

During the Activity

The teacher file explains how to run the activity.

After the Activity

The students have completed the activity when all 9 pool balls have a linear equation through them.
