# CONICS ARTWORK!

Document Sample

```					CONICS ARTWORK!
Programming Conics
Artwork on the
Graphing Calculator to
successfully TEACH the
Conic Sections!!
Some of the Project Requirements
   Create a drawing/design on graph paper (cartoon
character, sports object or mascot, design or a scene—
BE CREATIVE!!). It should include (at least) the
following 10 graphs (or pieces of graphs in your
creation:
   a.    1 circle
   b.    1 horizontal or vertical ellipse (or 1 of each)
   c.    1 vertical (or horizontal)parabola
   d.     2 lines
   e.    1 absolute value graph
   f.   any 4 more conic equations of your choice
More Project Requirements
   Create a table with four vertical columns titled as
indicated and fill in the information for each

    Then… Just WRITE THE PROGRAM!! 
Students Turn In:

   Initialed
Drawing/Sketch

   Neat copy of the table

   Final-Printed out Design
(colored if possible!)
Drawing (must be initialed)           15
Equations (must be initialed)         50
Program                               20
Final Design                          15
Creativity and Difficulty             10__
TOTAL                           110
Some Examples of Projects!
   Begin with a
sketch….
   Create something
AMAZING!! 
Sample Program
Problems Students May
Encounter
   Solving Equations For “Calculator” or “y
= ‘s” form can be tricky
   Finding equations of parabolas &
hyperbolas
   Using Restrictions
   Making small errors when typing in
program & finding those errors!
Finding the equation of a hyperbola going through
a specific point:
Finding the equation of a parabola going through
a specific point:
Have Fun!
