Engage your students in a mathematical task echoing the premise of the popular TV show, "The Walking Dead".
With an impending zombie apocalypse on the horizon, students are asked to compile a report to the United States government warning of the potential dangers looming ahead and to explain how much time is left to save the world. This mathematical task gives students the opportunity to further explore and understand exponential functions in a “real world” situation. Students will utilize technology to incorporate tables and graphs into their official report, and they will be asked to analyze their information and support and defend their reasoning. Students will have the ability to be creative and create an engaging presentation as they explain their results from the function they have developed.
