This lesson covers the concept of linear change versus exponential change. The handout and worksheet have problems that require students to analyze the type of change in a table, analyze the type of change based on a given scenario, and write now-next rules. The handout is meant to be given out to students and worked through with the teacher. It contains 9 problems plus an introduction section on the differences of linear and exponential functions. The worksheet is meant to be independent practice and it has 5 problems.

I do this fun activity before the linear vs. exp lesson to introduce students to the differences between linear and exponential functions:
Link-Linear vs. Exponential Skittle Activity
And I do this activity between the guided notes and worksheet:
Link-Linear vs. Exponential Dominoes
