### Algebra 2 Conic Sections Foldables

The tornado in Broken Arrow yesterday hit about a mile from my family's business.  I ended up in the storm cellar at my parents' house for the second time this month.  I've always hated tornadoes, but this one hit way too close for comfort.

Yesterday, I wrote about the amazing experience my Algebra 2 students and I had using Cindy Johnson's Conic Cards.  Here's the proof.  Instead of giving my Algebra 2 students a final exam, I challenged them to complete three interactive notebook pages over three topics we had studied this year.  I was pleasantly surprised to see tons of projects about conic sections!

While working on these projects, my students asked me where the conic cards were so they could use them as a reference.  This is a testament to just how comfortable they feel using the conic cards.  Even though they hadn't used them in several weeks, students still knew exactly where they could find each piece of information that they needed.  And, I'm pretty sure hyperbolas were their least favorite conic section because only one student submitted a project over hyperbolas.

Again, remember that these are student projects.  If you decide to use any of these with your classes, be on the lookout for small and large errors!
