Shifting Times Tables from @nrichmaths

One of my favorite summer finds was the Shifting Times Tables activity on nrichmaths for helping kids to see the connection between proportional and non-proportional sequences in building toward writing linear equations in slope-intercept (y = mx + b) form.
In keeping with the same idea of the activity, I wanted to have students making connections to graphs and have access to things like sliders so I converted it to this Desmos Classroom activity.

I do make the assumption that students in this activity have previous experience with proportional relationships in graph and table form.
I'd love feedback or ideas of what I could do to make it better or have students make stronger connections.
