Objective

Students will be able to write exponential functions to model the growth of a fictional rabbit population. Students will be able to use negative exponents to work backwards to find the original rabbit population.

Big Idea

With two days to think about bunny population problems, students reach a much deeper understanding of how exponential growth works and are able to use the concept of “going backwards in time” to make meaning of negative exponents.
