Nailed it!

Nailed it!!!

Have you ever tried to recreate an image of an object? If we asked you to recreate an image what would you use to create the sketch? Designers often use graph paper to sketch out their creations. Your task for the initial phase of this two phase project will be to use mathematical functions to recreate an emoji using the functions that you have learned in your math classes, and choose a technology outlet to create a tangible product.



· Algebra I

    • Represent linear, exponential and quadratic equations graphically
      • 39.F.IF.7 graph functions expressed algebraically and show key features of the graph by hand and by using technology - students should be proficient in graphing linear functions in both slope-intercept form and standard form and be able to explain when it is more appropriate to graph by finding intercepts or by solving for y
      • 37.F.IF.5 relate the domain of a function to its graph and, where applicable, to the quantitative relationship it describes; e.g., if the function h(n) gives the number of person-hours it takes to assemble n engines in a factory, then the positive integers would be an appropriate domain for the function

· Geometry

    • Translate between the geometric description and the equation for a conic section
      • 29.G.GPE.1 derive the equation of a circle of given center and radius using the Pythagorean Theorem; complete the square to find the center and radius of a circle given by an equation

· Accelerated Geometry

    • Analyze polynomial, rational and radical functions using different representations
      • 23.F.IF.4 for a function that models a relationship between two quantities, interpret key features of graphs and tables in terms of the quantities, and sketch graphs showing key features given a verbal description of the relationship. Key features include: intercepts; intervals where the function is increasing, decreasing, positive, or negative; relative maximums and minimums; symmetries; end behavior *( Limit to radical and rational functions)
      • 26.F.IF.7 graph functions expressed symbolically and show key features of the graph, by hand in simple cases and using technology for more complicated cases*


    • TEC1.A.3: Demonstrate effective professional communication skills (oral, written, and digital) and practices that enable positive customer relationships.
    • TEC1.A.4: Identify, describe, evaluate, select and use appropriate technology
    • TEC1.A.5: Apply concepts needed to understand, communicate, and adapt to a digital world
    • TEC1.A.7: Use computational thinking procedures to analyze and solve problem



· Project Launch


· Concept for emoji



· Minimum of three functions (1 from each level)


· Desmos image submission


· Final product in whatever form your group has chosen


· Phase 2 of the project
