An Interesting Lottery

Unit 3: Systems of Equations
Lesson 12 of 13

Objective: Students will be able to graphically represent a non-linear system involving a linear function and exponential function. Students will understand how the concept of "doubling" a number (exponential growth) will eventually outpace linear growth.

Big Idea: I love surprises in mathematics. When you expect something to go one way and it turns out differently that leads to real learning. Students are usually shocked by the speed at which an exponential function grows in relation to a linear function and this
