The MSTE lessons site contains a collection of excellent high school/lower college division math lessons (and a limited number of science lessons) that use the Internet in significant ways. The lessons have been developed with descriptions of the problem, connections to standards, examples of use, references, and more. Java source codes are often available. The Office for Mathematics, Science, and Technology Education (MSTE) is a division of the College of Education at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

College Algebra or Liberal Arts math students are presented with a ConcepTest and a write-pair-share activity involving Florida's population growth. The activity asks students to decide whether a ten-year growth rate can be divided by 10 to produce the corresponding annual growth rate for each of the ten years. The results show that, while students may have learned that exponential growth is a multiplicative process, their conceptual understanding concerning exponential growth is often a bit fuzzy.
