    If you are looking for a unique way to teach your students about exponential functions then you don't need to search any more. This lesson asks students to figure out how many dominoes it would take to topple over a domino the size of a skyscraper. I love lessons like this because they engage students and force them to think!

    This is a collection of five different math lessons on exponential functions and growth. They are complete lessons that are aligned to the Common Core standards. As a busy teacher, what more could you ask for!

    This blog shares an interesting lesson plan for teaching about exponential growth and decay. The teacher, Sarah Hagan, candidly shares why the lesson bombed and what she would do differently next time.

    This video from the Khan Academy introduces the concept of exponential function and solves a word problem with it. This is a great resource to share with students who might benefit from watching it multiple times. This could be good to use with students who are ready to move ahead to this concept or who need to spend some extra time on it.

    This lesson, which is aligned to the Common Core standards, has everything you need to teach a lesson on exponential decay. And what busy teacher does not want a lesson that is ready to teach! This lesson was created by Dan Meyer, one of the most widely recognized and respected math teachers in the world.
