A gallery walk is a great way to get your students thinking and moving!
Use this activity to introduce the topic of exponential functions.
Each student will be given an equation for which he/she will complete a table and graph the data. They will post their work around the classroom to create a "gallery". Then, students will make observations about exponential functions as they take a "gallery walk". As they examine the data tables and graphs, they will answer the following questions about exponential functions:
- What do the graphs of exponential equations look like?
- How can I identify the y-intercept by looking only at the equation?
- How can I determine whether a graph will open up or down?
- Does the graph intersect the x-axis?

There are 30 different problems (two per page).
