Help the Avengers match the clues to find their graphs and linear equations that will uncover the combinations to the locks and set the world free.
Around the room you are sure to find, Graphs and charts of the linear kind.
Equations may not be of the norm, Until they are written in slope-intercept form.
The ordered pairs can determine the slope, if you are clever and decide not to mope.
A rhyming clue can help narrow down, Which Avenger to match with the clues that you found.
Once you’ve matched all the pieces ,and feel you are done, the locks must be opened ,or the timer will run.
The class that completes the challenge the best, will use every brain possible and no one will rest.
Now all work together and get the job done. The clock is a ticking, it’s time to have fun.
