Included in this zip folder are 20 PDF files. 9 are introductory lessons, 1 is a reference and 10 are assignments. A brief description of each:
The reference is a 2 page printable. It contains definitions and example problems for this unit.
Intro #1 is a 58 page, 20 formative assessment question file. It introduces exponential functions and defines;
1. Exponential Functions
2. Initial Value
3. Growth Rate
4. Decay Rate
It also uses the markup formula to derive the growth rate.
Intro #1A ia an 11 question formative assessment file over word problems without using logarithms.
Intro #2 is 25 page file that defines e and associates a limit equal to e^r to be used later in developing A=pe^rt
Intro #3 is a 25 page file that defines logarithms, common logs and the natural log. It demonstrates converting from exponential form to log form and vice versa.
Intro #4 is a 15 page file that develops:
1. The Product Rule
2. The Quotient Rule
3. The Power Rule
Intro #5 is a 28 page file that demonstrates solving logarithmic equations by:
1. Equal logs have equal arguments
2. Converting from logarithmic form to exponential form
3. Taking the common or natural log of both sides of an exponential equation
Intro #6 is a 20 page file that begins the link between interest compounded constantly vs. compounded continually.
Intro # 7 is a 23 page file that continues the journey started in Intro 6
Intro #8 is a 12 page file that finishes the journey of constant compounded interest to interest compounded continually.
Assignment A is a 1 page, 24 question short answer assignment to be done without a calculator. The student raises numbers to powers, solves exponential equations and inputs/outputs into exponential functions.
Assignment B is Like Assignment A
Assignment #1 is over 6 exponential functions. The student inputs/outputs to graph the functions and identifies if the function is growth or decay. This assignment can be done at socrative.com and he share number is included in the file.
Assignment #1A is a 1 page, 24 question multiple choice file. The student identifies exponential functions, computes end behavior as limits of infinity and determines the growth or decay rate of a function. This assignment can be done at socrative.com and he share number is included in the file.
Assignment #2 is like #1A
Assignment #3 is a 1 page, 24 question file. The questions are both multiple choice and short answer. The student identifies exponential functions, calculates limits of infinity and evaluates logarithms. This assignment can be done at socrative.com and he share number is included in the file.
Assignment #4 is a 2 page written assignment. The student uses the product, quotient and power rules to combine and separate logarithms.
Assignment #5 is a 1 page, 24 question assignment. The student evaluates logs and uses the product, quotient and power rules. This assignment can be done at socrative.com and he share number is included in the file.
Assignment #6 is a 3 page written assignment. The student solves logarithmic equations by various methods.
Assignment #7 is a 1 page, 24 question file. The student evaluates logs, identifies constant growth/decay equations and answers word problems on constant growth. This assignment can be done at socrative.com and he share number is included in the file.
