    Conic Sections Project –                                              Period _____

     

    This project requires you to find pictures of at least 10 everyday objects that are examples of conic sections.  Each of the following should be represented at least once:   cones, circles, ellipses, parabolas, and hyperbolas.  Be sure to label each conic section.  Your project should be on poster board.  This should be visually appealing!!!  Be creative. 

     

     

    Projects will be due Monday, February 6.  There are no exceptions!!  Late projects will not be accepted.
