  • Be sure to allow time to set up and prepare stations before beginning the activity
  • This resource is only available on an unencrypted HTTP website. It should be fine for general use, but don’t use it to share any personally identifiable information
Pros
  • Uses a variety of engaging real-life scenarios to compare linear and exponential functions
  • Provides a detailed teacher guide with an introductory and closing activity
Cons
  • The applet for station three does not show up at the link provided
