Comparing linear, quadratic, and exponential functions notes helps guide students in understanding the major differences between linear, quadratic, and exponential functions.
1. Identify patterns that distinguish between linear, quadratic, and exponential functions through
a. Creating a table and comparing rules to get from one coordinate to the next
b. Graphing the coordinates
2. Writing basic linear, quadratic, and exponential equations based on values provided in coordinates
I use this set of notes in my Algebra I class in a 45 minutes class period.
Instructions for printing and assembly as well as an answer key are included.
Print on colored paper for added variety.
