Math honors projects

[/media-credit] Math two honors students display their finished ‘Angry Bird’ projects, Dec. 8. The project reviewed parabolas and quadratic equations.

Students in Angie Counts‘ 5th/7th-period math two class and 4th/6th-period math three class complete and present their honors projects, Dec. 8.

Math two honors students create an angry birds project. Over half of the fifth period class is involved in honors. Sophomore Megan LeBlanc shares about her experiences as she continues her second year of math honors.

“This year the math honors has been a little more difficult because there has been more work compared to last year when we just had more questions on our tests,” LeBlanc said. “This year we had an angry birds project and a powerpoint about a famous mathematician that we then presented. The ‘Angry Bird’ project has been pretty fun and fairly easy. I use to play the game so I was familiar with it, and it was also a good review of parabolas.”

Math three honors students create a lesson on a topic that students have previously learned. Some topics include, ‘Different Ways to Factor a Polynomial’ and ‘How to Convert Complex Numbers From Rectangular Form to Polar Form.’

Math teacher Angie Counts shares about all the honors projects in both math three and two and the significance of each one. All honors students complete one project for each quarter.

“For the first quarter math three honors students built a city,” Counts said. “I gave them parameters on the roads and the parallel lines, and then they had to write a story about their city and present it. This quarter they are doing a project called, ‘Pay it Forward’ where they are going back to a concept they learned and with a partner explain it and giving the class a quiz.

“For math two honors students in the first quarter they had to create a powerpoint about a famous mathematician,” Counts continued. After making the powerpoint the present that to the class. This quarter I assigned an ‘Angry Bird’ project reviewing parabolas and quadratic equations. I did the ‘Angry Bird’ assignment last year, and it was fun to see how each of the students design their projects.”

Next quarter, math two honors students must interview a mathematician and write an essay about what they learned. For the last quarter, they must bring in someone who uses math in their everyday life and have them explain what they do. The math three honors project is not decided yet.
