Students in Mr. Thomas' Algebra 2 class recently began a project called, 'The Pay It Forward Project.' The idea behind the project is that each student will do one good deed for three different people, and those three people can repay them by each doing three good deeds for three more people...and so on. The chain reaction taught students how exponential functions work and the power of multiplicity.
