This resource includes 5 days worth of lesson materials - 1 day introductory zombie project, 3 days lessons on exponential graphs, growth, and decay word problems, 1 day quiz. Includes my zombie project, listed separately here: Zombie Project Exponential vs Linear Growth Exploration
. A total of 16 pages of warm ups, guided notes, and practice problems including NY State Common Core Regents questions.
These materials are ready to use! Aligned to the Common Core Algebra standards and include real Algebra 1 Regents problems throughout.
Lessons align to the following objectives:
1) Compare exponential and linear growth
2) Graph an exponential function
3) Analyze key parts of an exponential function and how they relate to its graph
4) Write an exponential growth equation from a word problem
5) Write an exponential decay equation from a word problem
My students really loved these lessons and did very well on their quiz. Hope this works well for yours, too!
