In these worksheets, students will learn to solve word problems involving exponents.

#### These types of problems have a great deal of application in the real world. They are often used to track population growth among many different wild animal species. This form of math has a wide range of uses in the financial sector it helps millions of people each day make financial decisions for themselves and the companies that they represent. The action of public officials during the latest human pandemic to plague the world (COVID-19) has been be dictated by the exponential spread of the virus. Having a complete understanding of what each exponential graph means allows us to make confident and well thought out decisions. So, you can clearly see that this type of math is not only important, but it saves lives. Exponential word problems are problems involving something that increases at a constant rate. Exponential expressions can also be use to describe three-dimensional shapes. Your students will write expressions involving exponents that describe the given shape situations. They will also write and solve equations involving exponents to solve problems involving constant rates.
