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 emailed a week prior to the end of a quarter
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!

Painted by Numbers
Create a picture of any medium, using only numbers, shapes, and graphs that were discussed in the current chapter.
Write a poem; any style is OK. Whatever you do, get creative with the content.
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.
Create a visually good-looking bumper sticker that includes a catchy slogan. It has to be original and mathematically correct!
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.
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.
