Rule Time: Salute to Sports!The purpose of this module is to help students learn important applied mathematical concepts regarding exponential and logistic functions. Students will also learn how to graph and interpret exponential (and logistic, if desired) functions. The unique element of this lesson is the use of video to generate interest in the students and motivate the content through interactive technology, humor, and cooperative learning. Students are encouraged to work together and help each other “make sense” of the activities. You will need these video clips: Part 1  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xUavijWEwaQ Part 2 (after the problem situation is resolved)  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GfGj7Ik7Zao
