This teaching resource takes into consideration general, linguistic and subject specific aims. The general aims are the following: - Make cross - curricular links combining maths with science - Increase students’ motivation and interest in studying by using clil methodology - encourage students to develop the ability to think critically - prepare students for life in a more internationalised society - Develop the ability to think in English The linguistic aims are the following: - enable students to develop language skills which emphasize effective communication - motivate students to learn English by using it for real practical purposes - Promote the learning of a more extensive and varied vocabulary The subject specific aims are the following: - understand the meaning of exponential growth - understand the exponential rate of growth - Learn how to graph an exponential function - Learn the characteristics of the graph of an exponential function The Target group age: this activity is for students of the fourth year of high school from 17 to 18 the Level of competence in English (CEFR) should be B1 at least The Time required to use the resource with the students: 2 h How to use it: In this web site there are some worksheets that can be used in order to introduce the exponential function. The teacher should divide the class in small groups and give 5 worksheets to the students in order to let them plot the exponential function graph in the three cases (a>0, 0
