Module - Exploring Exponential and Logarithmic Functions
Lesson 1 - Exponential Functions
Objective

The student will be able to simplify expressions and solve equations involving real numbers.

Graphing Exponential Functions

This worksheet allows you to move the exponential function around by adjusting the h, k, and a sliders. The b slider will change the base. Move the sliders and pay attention to how the function moves.

AII.6       The student will recognize the general shape of function (absolute value, square root, cube root, rational, polynomial, exponential, and logarithmic) families and will convert between graphic and symbolic forms of functions. A transformational approach to graphing will be employed. Graphing calculators will be used as a tool to investigate the shapes and behaviors of these functions.
