Comparing and Contrasting Linear and Exponential Functions

Algebra I

Â» Unit:

Exponential Functions

Big Idea:Students compare linear and exponential functions, and, learn about actual and theoretical data.

Comparing Exponential and Linear Functions Day 2

Algebra I

Â» Unit:

Exponential Functions

Big Idea:This lesson is designed to show that an exponential functions growth will eventually exceed the growth of a linear function.

Sequences, Spreadsheets, and Graphs

Algebra I

Â» Unit:
