The Essential Question

Can students effectively develop online Algebra tutorials that model real-world functions?

Overview

Students
will collaborate in groups and develop tutorials about a major
Algebraic function. The project’s aim is for students to gain mastery
of various functions- linear, quadratic, and exponential.
The final project will be created using a multimedia applications and
will be available online resource for all students. Projects can be
viewed as a guest on class website (InClass).

The project will encourage creativity and collaboration, use of technology, and promote understanding of Algebra concepts and their relation to the real-world. The project meets many California and NCTM standards (Standards).

The goal of the project is for students to learn about Algebraic
funtions through group collaboration and to produce a presentation of
the function modeled in a real-world. Students will learn to develop a
5-7 minute presentation that uses mathematical concepts to model
real-world examples with multimedia applications.
