The Algebra Fair is like a science fair, in that it gives students an opportunity to research, learn, and share their knowledge. In this case, students worked in groups of three to come up with theme. Once they decided on a theme, they found a linear, exponential, and quadratic function that relates to that theme. Some of the themes included basketball, the jungle, pandas, and space travel.
Visitors listened to presentations and had a chance to see how algebra can be used in everyday life....finally answering the age old question "When are we ever going to use this?"
