Eulogy for TAKS
• What is a eulogy*?
– is a speech or writing in praise of a person or
thing, especially one recently deceased or retired.
Eulogies can also praise a living person or people
who are still alive.
Hint: Look on You Tube for a Comedy Central
“Roast” of any Celebrity – like Jeff Foxworthy or
Flavor Flav
*Technically an eulogy is only praise for a subject, but for this
project we want you to expand it to include “biographical”
information, which would make it an obituary too.
Example Eulogy/Obituary
The Linear Parent Function died last Thursday
after intersecting a Quadratic function. He leaves
behind his partner; negative Linear Parent Function
(y=-x), his children; Positive and Negative Slope, and
two grandchildren; Zero and Undefined Slope. LPF’s
inlaws, the Y-Intercepts will also be at the funeral.
LPF was born at the Origin at (0,0). His family
religiously followed the Slope-intercept form, Y = mX
+ b, and occasionally the standard form, aX + bY = c,
but that was usually frowned upon. An “upright”
citizen, LPF was never in trouble with Exponential
Laws. His friends would say he was very
“straightforward”, never took the long way around...
Topics that may be Eulogized:
• TAKS Objectives 1-5 (may be eulogized
separately or as a group!)
• Functions (including Domain & Range, how to
tell if something is a function, Ind./Dep., etc.)
• Expressions (types of polynomials, combining
like terms, simplifying, etc.)
• Linear Functions (types of lines, slope, y-
intercept, y = mx + b, etc.)
• USE – YOUR - NOTES for help!
Topics that may be Eulogized cont.
• Equations (forms of equations like standard &
slope-intercept, solving, rate of change, etc.)
• Systems of Equations (solution of a system-
point of intersection, parallel, perpendicular,
intersecting, lines, solving for y, etc.)
• Inequalities (friends or foes, greater-than,
less-than, greater-than or equal to, shading,
types of lines, etc.)
• USE – YOUR - NOTES for help!
Guidelines:
• Project may be done in the following formats:
Speech – 2 pages minimum, typed, single -
spaced, 12pt. Font!
PowerPoint – 10 slides minimum, must include
pictures as well as the eulogy text!
Song/Rap – 2 minute length minimum, typed
out, MUST be performed!
Comic Strip – on Posterboard, with artwork &
eulogy text!
** Extra points given for presentation & creativity!**
Guidelines:
• Project MUST include at least 15 vocabulary
words related to the topic – they must be
used in a way that makes sense!
• Projects with artwork must be both colorful &
• Project is DUE Friday, May 6, by 2:30pm
• Projects will have 10 points deducted each day
they are late – yes, that includes testing days!
*** THIS IS A MAJOR GRADE!!! ***
So show me what you know!
