You can always draw a straight line through two points, so Mars is always 'lines up' with Earth!

Do you mean 'when will Mars, Earth and the Sun line up togther'? If so, try a Web search on 'times of Mars opposition' and/or 'times of Mars conjunction' for your homework.

Good luck - this Web site is about calculating astronomical positions and quantities.
