My partner and I learned that not all equations may be graphed. There are many specifications and details that need to be made before actually graphing and inputting an equation on to the paper in order for a solution to be possible.

However, having to think of something to draw and a background story for it didn't come out to be so enjoyable especially without a central theme to go around. Adding to that the processes online were a little bit challenging and complicated at times for us to comprehend. The extra time and thorough expla
