This is a two-part project. There is a sample rubric attached as well as a sample of student work.
Part 1: Students will graph a piecewise function with 20 intervals using constant, linear, absolute value, and quadratic functions. Once graphed, the picture will look like an animal that they can recognize if they completed it correctly.
Part 2: Students will create their own piecewise function and the corresponding graph in order to create their own picture.
*You can allow the use of graphing calculators for students to develop regression models if so desired.
