#### Description

It's inevitable. One day Zombies will take over Earth. If you are not preparing your students, you are being irresponsible. Turn your "dead" exponential and logarithm unit into an "undead" one. Students will use data to formulate an Action Plan for the United Nations Center for Disease Control. Perfect for Halloween!

-- "Zombie Apocalypse" will have students (or teams) answer the exponential function and logarithm questions and develop mathematical models and make predictions. Using regression functions on TI-Graphing Calculators or Excel is necessary. This should take approximately 1 class period. Along the way they will explore inverse exponential and logarithmic functions

-- “Outbreak”. In this task, half of your class will turn into zombies while the other have tries to cure them... or else they will become Zombies too.

-- “Z-Day”. Asks students to use exponential decay models to determine when the Zombie population is controlled.

Students (or teams) will create a report to the United Nations in which they design an Action Plan, Procedures for an Antidote and Suggestions for future safeguards.
