This lesson seems wonderfully engaging for students as it provides many connects to real-life experience. There are a number of "bigger questions" posed that require students to use prior knowledge and critical thinking to come to a solution. This will allow students with various learning styles to use their individual skills sets to come to a solution to the problem in a unique way (compared to a traditional "inputs -> equation -> solution" type problem).

Additionally, this lesson utilizes technology both as an instructional tool and as a tool for students to solve the problems posed (i.e. how does one retire as a millionaire while only making minimum wage?). There are multiple means of representation suggested and group work is used to reinforce prior knowledge.

Technical Remarks:

The pdf link works. The lesson references the use of Dabbleboard as an additional resource, however Dabbleboard appears to no longer be available (shut down earlier this year).

This lesson plan on Exponential Growth provides students with definite real-world applications which is important for students.  The video clip is engaging to students and provides a good launch for the lesson.  The students have the flexibility within the lesson to demonstrate their knowledge in multiple ways.
