Instructional Ideas

  • Have learners write a letter to the parks department with their findings; they must support their findings using the mathematics
  • Use as a performance task assessment at the conclusion of a unit on exponential funcitons
Classroom Considerations

  • Requires graph paper, chart paper, markers, and manipulatives such as tiles, cubes, or chips
Pros

  • Applies a plausible real-life scenario to exponential modeling
  • Encourages multiple pathways to solve the problem
