In this project students use statistics to satisfy their curiosity. They work on this project in both ELA and math class.

In ELA:
 1) Students brainstormed about interests and passions and generated a researchable question about a topic of interest. 
2) Students did some background research using the custom search engine below:


In MATH:
Students created a survey to:
    (1) Collected and organized data about their topic of interest
    (2) Graphed the data
    (3) Interpreted the data 

Students used this process to support their conclusion about their research question

Parabolic Curves and Linear Equations.
Essential Question: 
"How and why can we create parabolic curves out of                             straight lines?"
Students' Task:

Students create art using their knowledge of linear equations. They (re)create a piece of Art of Parabolic Curves using straight lines only.

They must:

  • Write the piecewise function forming the chosen art piece
  • Create a digital version of the art piece using desmos

Owrking on their Catapult project which was the culminating product of a Quadratic Functions Unit

Catapult Project
Here are my students exploring the math in multiple real-life experiences, among those was projectile motion of catapults! 

Essential Question:

How can you predict the landing place of a projectile?


Students Task:

"You are soldiers during WWI and one of your comrades is in a shell hole in No Man’s Land. You need to send him supplies without being noticed, so you decide to send him using a catapult.  How can you predict where your supplies will land? "


We all had a lot of fun!
