### Description

This is an exponential function around the world activity (also known as scavenger hunts). Each page is printed and put up around the room (not in order). Students can start at any location. The top half of the sheet is the answer to a different problem and the bottom half is the problem that they should work on. After they calculate their answer, they find the page around the room that has the answer and go there for their next problem, then repeat.
There are a total of 10 problems. Each problem is a word problem that gives an exponential situation and requires students to setup an exponential function rule, plug in for x or y, and solve for the missing variable based on the question asked. Students do not solve the equations by hand. They will use the table feature on their graphing calculator to answer the questions!
