Mars Transport is a six level platformer where players control a small flying robot on Mars. This game helps students visualize how slope is calculated by giving controls to the player where they must calculate the slope in order to navigate the world. The goal of each of the six levels is to collect three disc like objects positioned in different parts of the level. In the first part of the game students are given a coordinate plane and must determine the flight trajectory based on the slope by comparing points on the grid. In later levels, students determine the slope of the line without a coordinate plane but by using the coordinates.
