Giving Exponential Functions a Fair Shake

Jeffrey Wanko 

October 2005, Volume 11, Issue 3, Page 118

Abstract:
Two problems involving exponential functions and basic probability. Eighth-grade students collect data in experiments with M&Ms and dice, then use graphing calculators to construct graphical representation of mathematical models and make connections between the general form of the exponential functions and real life problems.
