My students totally enjoy doing the following math lab! They invariably find it to be both fun to do as well as informative. They readily relate to discussions within.
* Students work with a partner
* Students begin by a brief discussion about seed overproduction
* Students are provided with assumptions used to complete the lab
* Students work collaboratively to determine the number of seeds in a bell pepper
* Students find the average number of seeds in a bell pepper using the totals of all groups in the class
* Students discuss exponential functions, what they are and what they look like on the Cartesian Plane
* Students record all data on a Data and Observation Table provided in the lab
* Students complete a function table provided in the lab
* Students graph collected data on a Cartesian Plane
* Students answer four analysis questions reflecting their observations
* A thorough discussion is included as to how seed overproduction is used today to benefit the increasing populations of the world through use of the latest technology.
* Answers are provided to all charts, graphs, and questions
* Please enjoy this lab as much as my students enjoyed it...!
* Thank you, kindly...:)
