**What do zombies, cockroaches and bacteria have in common? They can be used in word problems to help students understand growth and decay in exponential functions. Imagine your students using a real-life scenario to create a multi-rep poster that contains a table, an equation and a graph. The problems are interesting and fun! After the poster making is complete, have the students do a gallery walk and let them find the domain and range and decide if the situation is growth or decay. Very little prep for the teacher. Let the students do all the work! This activity gives the student choices, an avenue to be creative, a chance to learn cross-curricular content and of course an opportunity to learn about exponential functions! Here is what you get:**
