Reviewer Comments:

The Domino Effect is an activity created by Mathalicious.  The Mathalicious website provides a lesson guide, student handout and extension activities.  In this activity students use the Domino's pizza website to calculate the base price and cost of pizza toppings using linear relationships.  The website has a great interactive graphing activity.  Questions are posed throughout the lesson however answer are not given.  This activity is introductory so no prior knowledge is required.  This is a great way to introduce linear equations.
