This worksheet is designed to help students with the topic of exponential decay. Students will simulate exponential decay using 100 pennies, flipping them, and removing all of the heads.
NOTE: You will need 100 pennies for each group of up to 4 students in your classroom. I have found that grocery stores are often happy to exchange dollar bills for sets of 100 pennies if you explain the reason you need so many pennies! :)
I use this activity within cooperative groups, and I circulate to make sure they are getting the purpose of the questions.
The file includes spiral review problems.
This worksheet is intended to be written on directly.
Please download the pdf preview file first, so you can see exactly what's included; the product file is a word document, which you may personalize for your students.
