Reflection: Checks for Understanding Exponential Models Day 2 of 2 - Section 1: Warm Up and Homework Review


I received so many great responses to this warm up.  One student (1) made a Venn diagram.  Another (2) pointed out that the exponent, x, was the same while the bases were different.  Another (3) associated it to the zombie scenario.  This one (4) described in words what the second student physically pointed to.  This is the power of an open ended question; students can show their knowledge in a large variety of ways.
