Description

This integrative session introduces bifurcation and the concept of exponential growth vs linear growth using math, literature, and technology. Join us to learn a fun, hands-on way to introduce iterations and exponents using a problem-centered approach. This activity asks students to predict, create a plan with a formula, test their plan, collect data, and compare their own plan to one from a literary story. Students will use excel as a tool to help.
