Scientific Notation: Linear vs. Exponential

An interactive lab (scroll down to the bottom of the site to find it), in which students watch bacteria grow, take their own data, and answer follow-up lab questions.

Investigating Exponential Growth

This site provides an in-class or out of class activity relating to exponential growth. Some links are missing.

World Population

This site provides past and present world populations using mathematical calculations.

Population Modeling and Exponential Growth

In-class experiments that show exponential growth and decay. Offers several experiments and includes worksheets. Click 'One Day Module' for skittle and golf ball experiment.

World Population Calculator

An applet that uses US census data and the world growth rate to keep a real-time estimate of global population.

DoublingAn Exponential Growth Activity

An in-class activity that shows students how high (and quickly) a piece of paper can grow in height when folded in half repeatedly.

Teaching Exponential Growth and Decay

In-class activity helping students understand half-life and exponential growth and decay using coins or M&Ms. Slightly more challenging than activities dealing strictly with exponential growth.

Population Growth: Student Activities

A site with activities and links to important population sites.

Word Problems: Exponential Growth

Thorough tutorial on exponential growth with word problems (including worked out solutions).

Exploring Linear Data

Helps students graph linear data using a line of best fit app; includes various activities and discussion questions for the class.
