Hi Mary Beth,

Plot3D[ a  x , {x, -5, 5}, {a, -4, 4}, ViewPoint -> {0, 100, 0},
PlotPoints -> {11, 9}, Shading -> False]

Even if it appears to be besides your requirement, I have mentioned it
as  it may serve as an early introduction to 3D, in which Mathematica
has shorter  effective and powerful commands. Slightly changing
ViewPoint shows a Hypar. What you want here is its special case
projection, you see here that 'a' has been treated as a variable.
