DO NOT PLAGIARIZE!  PLAGIARISM IS A SERIOUS OFFENSE.  IT WILL RESULT IN A ZERO FOR THE PROJECT AS WELL AS A SUSPENSION.


In this webquest, your task is to research a career that you are interested in pursuing in the future, including the importance of Math in this career.  You will then write a paper about what you found as well as prepare a presentation about the career for the class.

Your paper and presentation should answer the following questions:

1) Summarize your career.  What does someone with your career do every day?  
2) How is Math used in your career?
3) What is the beginning and average salary range for your career?
4) What college and high school math classes are needed for your career?
5) What college degrees or other training are necessary for your career?
6) What are some benefits or drawbacks (if any) to your career?

Your paper and presentation must meet the following requirements.
  • Your paper should answer all of the questions above IN PARAGRAPH FORM.  Do not just create a list of questions and answers.
  • Your paper must be typed, 12 point font, double spaced, 1 inch margins on all sides.  
  • Your presentation will consist of you getting up in front of the class and telling us about your career. Make sure to address your answers to all of the questions asked above.  Your presentation should not be more than 5 minutes.  You will be timed and asked to stop at the 5 minute mark.
  • A well designed poster of your career IS REQUIRED!  This will be a part of your overall grade
  • Any other presentation materials (powerpoint, handouts, dressing up like your profession, etc) are optional, but are encouraged for EXTRA CREDIT.
  • You will sign up for a presentation time slot at the beginning of the project.  Your presentation must be done at this time. NO EXCUSES.
  • During student presentations, you as an audience member are required to pay attention and ask questions.  You will have a note taking worksheet to complete while others are presenting.  This is part of your overall project grade.
