Why can a regular sheet of paper be folded only about six times? By folding a sheet of paper in half, over and over, the number of layers and the thickness of the paper doesn’t just double, they increase exponentially. Find out how many times a sheet of paper can actually be folded!
This sequence of two lessons explores exponential functions as seen in the real world, linking the representations of function rules, graphs and tables of values. Students consider real world objects and data that can be described using exponential functions. They use simulations and modelling to investigate transformations, ...
This is a teacher resource for applications of logarithmic and exponential functions consisting of a website and a PDF with identical content. It contains examples of applications of exponential and logarithmic functions such as radioactive half-life and population growth.
This is a 23-page guide for teachers, providing an introduction to the financial mathematics component of the number and algebra strands for years 9 and 10. A brief history of the concept of money concludes the module.
These seven learning activities, which focus on 'representations' using a variety of tools (software) and devices (hardware), illustrate the ways in which content, pedagogy and technology can be successfully and effectively integrated in order to promote learning.
