Side Quest Objectives:
1. You can only turn in your side quest once, so do your very best!
2. The side quest must connect to the current chapter.
3. The side quest must be turned in before the quiz/test is taken.
4. Final side quests must be turned in a week prior to the end of a quarter
in-person or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Side Quests scores are based on correctness, creativity, skillfulness, review usefulness, and practicality.
Side Quests can be completed in groups (if applicable) from other periods.
Tip: A simple sheet of paper with words on it will not receive a high score.
YOU CAN DO MULTIPLE SIDE QUESTS EACH QUARTER.
THE BEST ONE WILL BE PUT IN THE GRADEBOOK AS AN EXTRA CREDIT GRADE!
THE OTHER ATTEMPTS WILL BE CONVERTED INTO XP!
MONTHLY SIDE QUEST
A new type of side quest will be offered every month. These will only be offered for a limited time!
Make a meme using an existing or an original template that discusses a topic, lesson, or chapter
from this year in an amusing way. Memes should be original and school appropriate.
No credit will be given if the meme of the topic already exists or
if two or more students use the same meme in the same context.
Painted by Numbers
Create a picture of any medium, using only numbers, shapes, and graphs that were discussed in the current chapter.
For this quest, you must create something inspired by the current chapter with clay.
Write a poem; any style is OK. Whatever you do, get creative with the content.
Design/Create a commemorative stamp honoring a mathematician and/or using challenging vocabulary terms.
Create the cover of a major magazine. It must feature a realistic-sounding article title about our current chapter. Your job is not to write the article. Your job is to make a very convincing magazine cover, so people believe it is real. Pay attention to every detail.
Create a family tree for the current unit.
Write new lyrics to song using a topic from the current chapter. The better the info, the better the project.
Create a map of something in our current chapter.
First, select an important passage from our text or something you researched. Second, use an audio editor, like GarageBand, to record yourself reading the passage. Finally, lay down some beats and loops to create an audio masterpiece.
Easy as Pi(e)
Pi pies are overrated! Create a dish that is "punny" and/or educational. The ingredients used are just as important as the final look of the creation!
Create an infographic about something in the current chapter. Do a Google search for "infographic" to get an idea of what one looks like.
Sing a Song
Create a song or rap, or any other style of music, and record it! Must include information from the current chapter and show mastery of the material.
Write out an instant message conversation (any platform) between two characters (be creative) from the current chapter.
Create a fake report card for something in the chapter. The report card for this "student" could be anything. May your "student" be anything relative to mathematics, like a principle or theorem. No matter what, think outside the box and fill in their report card.
Create a visually good-looking bumper sticker that includes a catchy slogan. It has to be original and mathematically correct!
With a team (not necessarily your Classcraft team), work to construct your very own viral video on a topic of interest in this chapter.
After a chapter is concluded, you have one day to summarize the whole chapter in just six words.
