Title: Shedding the Light      Add Bookmark
Description: In this four-lesson unit, from Illuminations, students investigate a mathematical model for the decay of light passing through water. The goal of this investigation is a rich exploration of exponential models in context. Students examine the way light changes as water depth increases, conduct experiments, explore related algebraic functions using an interactive Java applet and analyze the data collected.
