Skeeter Populations and Exponential Growth

Students perform investigations on the growth of populations and use exponential functions to represent that growth. They watch a video clip of growth patterns. Students work in groups to determine the "population" of each color of "Skeeter." A Skeeter may be any candy, coin, or two sided chip. Students perform explorations to determine growth patterns.

Lesson Planet has helped me differentiate my classroom as needed. I always find it easy to adapt work for struggling learners but find it more difficult to adapt work for higher level learners. By using lesson planet I get great ideas to create fun, challenging work for my higher level learners.
