Product Description
This activity can be used to introduce exponents in a real-life manner. The question is posed: Would you rather have one dollar now or one penny that is doubled every day for the next two weeks.

This product provides a graphic organizer to help the teacher and students keep track of how much money amounts through the doubling every day.

A second graphic organizer is provided to look at the amount of money from the penny shown as multiples of 2 and, then, powers of 2. This activity also shows the derivation of 2 to the 1st power and 2 to the zero power and the meaning of each.

This product was created by Susan M. Walker.
