Participants will spend time engaged in a sample of relevant situations that can be used to help students review and deepen their understanding of percentages, rates, and ratios, as well as launch into exponential growth and decay functions. Participants will work with recursive functions (with tools like google sheets) to help with complex and repeated calculations and to model these various situations. Contexts include medication levels, investments, loans, and credit cards. Access to a laptop or device with MS Excel or Google Sheets will be helpful to participants.
