- HSF-LE.A.1Distinguish between situations that can be modeled with linear functions and with exponential functions.
- HSF-LE.A.2Construct linear and exponential functions, including arithmetic and geometric sequences, given a graph, a description of a relationship, or two input-output pairs (include reading these from a table).
- HSF-LE.A.3Observe using graphs and tables that a quantity increasing exponentially eventually exceeds a quantity increasing linearly, quadratically, or (more generally) as a polynomial function.
- HSF-LE.A.4For exponential models, express as a logarithm the solution to ab<sup>ct</sup> = d where a, c, and d are numbers and the base b is 2, 10, or e; evaluate the logarithm using technology.

- HSF-LE.A.1aProve that linear functions grow by equal differences over equal intervals, and that exponential functions grow by equal factors over equal intervals.
- HSF-LE.A.1bRecognize situations in which one quantity changes at a constant rate per unit interval relative to another.
- HSF-LE.A.1cRecognize situations in which a quantity grows or decays by a constant percent rate per unit interval relative to another.
