Reflection: Advanced Students Marketing Exponential Functions: A Group Performance Assessment Task - Section 3: Productive Work Time: Marketing Exponential Functions Performance Task


The Marketing Exponential Functions project was a huge success both in terms of furthering students understanding and in terms of student engagement. The project allows for multiple entry points and accessibility for a wide range of learners. 

Student Work 1 Marketing Exponentials is an example of relatively advanced students. Note the attention to detail in the graphs as well as the written explanation and interpretation of the scenario this particular group created. Student Work 2 Marketing Exponentials is a strong presentation that demonstrates an understanding of the core unit concepts through creation of multiple representations of exponential functions. 

Providing a common set of expectations and project parameters (through the lesson's performance checklist and rubric) allowed significant flexibility for students to choose the type of scenario they would create and also work at a level of understanding that was an appropriate balance of challenge and support.

Marketing Exponential Functions: A Group Performance Assessment Task

Unit 5: Exponential Functions
Lesson 8 of 10

Objective: SWBAT create and interpret exponential functions. SWBAT paraphrase complex arguments as evidenced by writing a summary statement explaining their group's project and reasoning.

Big Idea: Students collaborate to identify, develop, and promote ways to use exponential functions to understand the world around us through mathematical modeling!
