Adrian Paenza presents a fun TEDEducation talk about exponential growth using the ‘folding of paper to reach the moon’ as his example. How many folds do you think it would take to reach the moon? You just might be surprised!
From YouTube: Can folding a piece of paper 45 times get you to the moon? By seeing what happens when folding just one piece of paper, we see the unbelievable potential of exponential growth. This lesson will leave you wanting to grab a piece of paper to see how many times you can fold it!
