How Does Your Population Grown?

Do you know how the population has grown of your community? Can you predict the population over the next half century? Can we find an algebraic model that matches our data? These along with many more questions can be researched by students through the use of internet resources. This instructional activity contains a good introductory and culminating activity on exponential growth, and some links to useful websites that may have to be modified for your location.

When plans are needed, and time is short, I begin here for help from my colleagues. The framework of lessons, excellent worksheets, and multimedia presentations has proved extremely helpful.
