In this project students are asked to select a rectangular wall space in the school and make 3 design proposals using conic sections including parabola, ellipse, and hyperbola.
There are different degrees of difficulty available for students to choose from and they are to incorporate aspects of the conic sections into the design. These include directix lines, foci, and asymptotes. The higher the degree of difficulty described then higher the scoring for the project.
Students must show and describe the calculations for each design and turn these in along with the proposal.
I have included some sample designs and also a complete sample of an exemplar student project.
