a. Content objective:
Algebra 2 students will be in groups randomly picked by the teacher. The objective is to review conic sections for the exam. Students will use the ipads, netbooks, and/or their own electronic device to investigate material through Google. They will use a format of their choice to present to the class as a review. They will include all of the important characteristics of the conic section, an animation of how the conic section is formed given a double cone, and an animation on how the shape of the conic changes as the parameters change.
b. When you plan to implement:
I will assign it after the conic unit and present the week before the exam.
c. What tool(s) you plan to use:
All of the electronic devices the school district has provided for my classroom and the students electronic devices. I will let the students in each group determine how they want to present. Students will present the project during which each member of the group will have a speaking role, and class will critique for accuracy of material.
