Use fractals to learn about exponents and compare relative sizes of objects
In this exercise, students work with exponents, specifically with the bases of 2, 3, 4 and 10. Fill in tables, graph your results and formulate equations that match your graph. Compare relative scales of natural objects using exponent rules and make some measurements in the classroom to compare relative sizes.
