This is an interdisciplinary project for math and science, where students analyze real-life applications of exponential functions.
Using an online world population predictor, students will research population growth and decay over 50-100 years of two different countries in the world (one growth and one decay). Then, using an exponential model, they will write equations (algebraically) that would help them predict the data for any given year, for each country. They will create and analyze graphs, and also analyze the effect of the population growth on the county’s ecological system. Students will create a presentation to present their findings, analysis, and conclusions to the class.
This file includes:
- Details about the mathematics and science components of the presentation
- List of World Population websites that students may use to gather their data
- List of websites with instructions on how to create a PowerPoint presentation
- Three detailed rubrics (one for the math component, one for the science component, and one for the actual presentation)
