This assessment asks students to apply exponential functions to a real-world, relevant scenario! In addition to doing math, it will make them think about the impact of their words and of social media!
Students will understand that spreading rumors can occur exponentially. Students are given a scenario about the spread of a rumor (each person tells ten people, who tell ten people, etc). They fill out a table, answer questions, and create the equation. Then they are asked to describe how it applies to their use of Twitter and how the equation would change if each person only told 5 people, etc...
Demonstrates understanding of exponential functions.
