Phew, I finally graded all my conics projects. I told myself I couldn't take pictures of them or blog about them (the fun part) until they were graded. I finished that yesterday, so now I can blog about them. They were great! Last year was the first time I taught conics and I use @boblochel's project idea and made it mine here: Conics Project
Last year I made a slideshow of the conic projects and posted it here.
This year, I tried a collage. I love the variety. This happened naturally, just a few repeats. One student was working on Iron Man and had his head finished. He asked if he had to do the whole body. I said no. (I don't give them a set number of equations they must use). He continued and did the whole body - so he had 277 equations! They also have to find 2 intersection points - one of a conic/line and one of a conic/conic. I don't teach the conic/conic system, they teach themselves.
Nice job students!
