Each year, I give my students a Unit Circle Project to help them to remember the Unit Circle and to show off their creativity. Entries from two years ago were also great and can be found here. This year, students also rocked their projects. I think this is the hardest working class I've had in a very long time, and I am so proud of them. Students are told that they are not allowed to use project ideas already posted on the Internet, as that would be plagiarism, just as copying a paper is against our Honor Code. I showed them some projects I found online and told them theirs should all be original. I use guidelines and the rubric from http://secondarymissrudolph.blogspot.com/2014/07/unit-circle-art.html, and also tell students that they must make their own circles and not use pre-made materials for them. Here are some of their projects:
|I've seen these crayon melting effects on Pinterest!|
|"Arc" Reactor! Such a clever name (Ironman)|
|Look at the pepperoni, pineapple, and pepper cut-outs. The crust is very creatively done,|
and there is real oregano sprinkled throughout!
|A play on Dr. Suess|
|This student drew this by hand and dedicated it to her father.|
|Beautiful hand drawn peacock!|
|This student "made" her own lampshade from scratch!|
|Though I did get a few dartboards, this one actually works with magnetic darts!|
The student put a magnetic sheet under his hand drawn board.
|I liked the "Stonehenge" look of this, particularly as I am traveling there this summer!|
Stay tuned for my blog on the Unit Circle Tournament, which I will try to blog about later this week!
