					                Conics Advertising Extra Credit Project
You will create an ad for a conic section. This project is worth 10 extra points.

   1. Your conic section is _________________.
   2. Use the internet and your textbook to research different real life uses for that conic section. Be sure to write
      the name/address of the website so that you may cite it in your project.
   3. Pretend that you are selling this conic section and create an ad for this conic section. Be sure to include
      properties of the conic section, a picture of the conic section, a definition of the conic section, uses for the
      conic section, and of course, a price! (See grading rubric for more details). This may be a ‘print ad’ such as
      those you would find in a magazine or on a bill board or you may make a video commercial. The video must
      be one that we can play on the DVD player in your teacher’s classroom.
   4. You may present your ad in class as part of your grade.
Due Date - I will not accept any projects after April 9.
