College Algebra or Liberal Arts math students are presented with three Questions of the Day and a write-pair-share activity involving Florida's population growth (other states may be used in place of Florida). The results are quite revealing and show that while students may have learned how to perform the necessary calculations, their conceptual understanding concerning exponential growth may remain faulty. Student knowledge (or lack thereof) of the size of their state's population and its annual growth rate may also be surprising.

This site contains a collection of fully developed high school curriculum modules that use the Internet in significant ways. There are currently 15 modules in Mathematics and 6 modules in Science; also, there are approximately two dozen additional modules that have been created by instructors and/or Education students.The learning modules here are web-based, technology intensive lessons focusing on mathematics and science in an applied context. They have been developed for teachers, by teachers, aligned with the Illinois State Learning Standards and the National Council for Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) Standards. Some of the lessons are designed to last over several days, some only for a class period.
