Everyone loves a good story and now it’s your turn to tell one – an adventure story that you will create and share with your audience…graphically. You could be fifteenth century sailors searching for the new world, settlers caravanning west across the American prairie in the 1840s, or space travelers establishing a colony on a distant planet – in the far future. Whatever the case may be, you are traveling forth into great danger, risking it all for the sake of adventure and a better life. Like other noteworthy adventurers from history and literature, you will keep some sort of record of your travels. Gulliver wrote a memoir, Darwin kept scientific catalogues, a third-person immortalized Don Quixote’s fictitious blunders, and you will create a graphical record that summarizes your journey. You will write a narrative, then, using algebra, fit equations to a graph that will represent the ups, downs, ins, and outs of your journey. Lastly, you will present your findings to an audience on one of the most revered stages in modern society – in the form of a TED talk. You could be long-lost heroes telling your own travel story upon your return home, or you could assume the role of researchers piecing together the fate of a lost expedition, with only a tattered journal to guide you. Whatever the case, you are giving a polished, to-the-point presentation based on the “facts” of the journal and supported by visual aids.
