					                      Honors Analysis/Trig. Scavenger Hunt/Puzzle Project
                                              Fourth Marking Period


Each group (no more than 4) must find or do as many items as possible from the list, with each item having a
specified point value. Only 1 item per number will be credited and you may not use the same item for more than 1
number. Pictures and graphs should represent real world situations. The total numbers of points will determine
your group’s grade with a minimum of 100 points needed to receive a 70. Grades above a 70 will be determined by
the total number of points brought in by all groups. The higher the number of points turned in, the higher your
grade will be. The team with the highest score will receive a small prize .

All items must be handed in attached to 8 ½ x 11 paper. Number each item, highlight where in the picture the item is
located, have items in numerical order and staple all papers together.

Date Due: May 23, 2011 (at the start of class)
Late projects will lose 25 points per day from the project grade.
