PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a great activity that I use in my Algebra 1 class to introduce exponential functions. Students have to answer real life example questions in order to determine the characteristics of an exponential function. I let students work with a partner and then we go over the worksheet as a class. Students love answering the question "would you rather get a million dollars at the end of 1 month or earn a penny doubled everyday for 30 days?" Students need to have prior knowledge of exponential functions in order to succeed at this activity.

This think pair and share activity focuses on the difference between linear and exponential functions and how to relate them to real life situations.
