Use the properties of exponents to interpret expressions for exponential functions. For example, identify percent rate of change in functions such as y = (1.02)t, y = (0.97)t, y = (1.01)12t, y = (1.2)t/10, and classify them as representing exponential growth or decay.
This lesson will provide students with the opportunity to investigate a conceptual understanding of exponential functions. Students will begin with a mathematical model and then extend their knowledge to providing "mathematical" financial advice based off
To be successful in this test, you need to understand how to model with exponential functions, solve exponential equations, graph exponential functions and simplify exponential and logarithmic expressions.
In today's quiz, students demonstrate their flexibility in using logarithms and the properties of exponents to solve equations and rewrite expressions. They also learn to produce accurate sketches of exponential functions.
