This two-page worksheet can serve as an introduction to solving exponential decay word problems.
The first problem is an example problem that can be done as a class with the teacher guidance.
In the first few problems, a table is used as a graphic organizer to help organize the calculations. The table also serves to scaffold the student with the process.
When the students feel comfortable, they do not need to use a table.
