This set of 22 exercises would be perfect for a review before an exponential function test. The ideas covered are the equation, the y-intercept, the growth factor, growth vs decay, exponential vs linear, word problems, domain and range, a piecewise function, solving a system, and more! I wrote it for our algebra one students, but I could definitely see an algebra two classroom using this circuit too. None of the questions require the use of a calculator, but you might have your students use one to speed them up.

I do not include an answer key since the answers are imbedded in the circuit; it is how students move from one question to the next. This element of self-check is essential because it requires students to ask questions if they can not find their answer. The only thing the teacher needs to do is work the circuit ahead of the students to decide what, if any, vocabulary / notation / concepts should be addressed before the students begin. You will love the sounds of your students as they work through a circuit!

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Observe using graphs and tables that a quantity increasing exponentially eventually exceeds a quantity increasing linearly, quadratically, or (more generally) as a polynomial function.
Construct 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).
Recognize situations in which a quantity grows or decays by a constant percent rate per unit interval relative to another.
