Incorporate Reading & Writing into the Math Classroom with this article and accompanying worksheet! The 3 page article is entitled - "Exponential Functions in the Real World". The followup worksheet asks students to:

1) identify and define at least 5 vocabulary words associated with exponential functions within the article

2) summarize 5 ways exponential functions are used in the real world

3) discuss which of the 5 applications of linear equations most interests them

This resource can be used in so many ways, some ideas are: station activity, independent reading assignment, small group activity, homework assignment, or whole class discussion.

Model with mathematics. Mathematically proficient students can apply the mathematics they know to solve problems arising in everyday life, society, and the workplace. In early grades, this might be as simple as writing an addition equation to describe a situation. In middle grades, a student might apply proportional reasoning to plan a school event or analyze a problem in the community. By high school, a student might use geometry to solve a design problem or use a function to describe how one quantity of interest depends on another. Mathematically proficient students who can apply what they know are comfortable making assumptions and approximations to simplify a complicated situation, realizing that these may need revision later. They are able to identify important quantities in a practical situation and map their relationships using such tools as diagrams, two-way tables, graphs, flowcharts and formulas. They can analyze those relationships mathematically to draw conclusions. They routinely interpret their mathematical results in the context of the situation and reflect on whether the results make sense, possibly improving the model if it has not served its purpose.
