Your story must also fully cover these math concepts. This is an educational fairy tale … the best kind!

Solve a system of non-linear equations with a graph.
Solve a system of non-linear equations with a table.
Compare linear, quadratic, and exponential growth functions using a table and a graph. Submit the graph and table.
Identify that exponential functions exceed linear and quadratic functions.
You may present your fairy tale as a document, a slideshow presentation, a comic book, a video, or other medium. Any steps or work must be shown.
I'm not sure how I'm supposed to do this.

    So I'm thinking It could start something like this,

    Once upon a time, there was a Majestic Macaw named Peregrin with a special gift : two zeros of a mysterious quadratic quadratic equation that don't even exist yet! In his squeaky voice he asks Beorn the bear to form factors of this quadratic.Beorn takes the zeros, subtracts each from x and forms two corresponding factors that look like (x-a)(x-b). But then Peregrin feels completely at a loss regarding what to do next. But never fear, Celebrían the Coyote comes along and witnesses his distress.

Because Celeborn and Beorn are good friends Celeborn suggests that Beorn multiply together those two binomials, he suggests that Beorn uses distribution to expand those binomials.
