Note from the author:
A complete formative lesson with embedded slideshow, mini lecture screencasts, checks for understanding, practice items, mixed review, and reflection. I create these assignments to supplement each lesson of Pearson's Common Core Edition Algebra 1, Algebra 2, and Geometry courses. See also mathquest.net and twitter.com/mathquestEDU.
The outlined content above was added from outside of Formative.

Solve It! Scientists estimate the number of stars in the universe using this exponential expression.
The number of grains of sand in a cubic meter of beach sand can be approximated using this expression.
Suppose all of the sand from the world's beaches is combined into one large beach, as shown in the diagram. Are there more stars in the universe or grains of sand on the world's beaches?
Stars in the universe
Grains of sand on the world's beaches
