Sports and Math Project

Many of them chose angles or polygons, but some of the more creative ones used theorems or formulas. I had them write a paper explaining which concepts they chose and then show a pictorial representation, such as a drawing, diagram, or collage.

I will post examples soon. For now, here is the rubric I used:
