Looking for a project idea for your Algebra 2 or PreCalculus class? In this project the students are asked to find real life Conic Sections and create a poster to be displayed like in an art show. Students will then grade/judge each others' posters. Most of the work has to be done outside of the classroom. The art show piece takes about 30 minutes or less (depending on the number of students).
Included: description of the project (ready to be copied and given to the students), a photo of an actual final project, and student grade sheet
