This free worksheet contains 10 problems aligning with Common Core standard F.IF.C.8.b. Students will determine whether functions represent exponential growth or decay and the percent rate of change. Students will then answer word problems containing exponential functions. Answer key included. 6 page PDF. This worksheet can be used as an in class assignment or as a homework assignment.
to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Use the properties of exponents to interpret expressions for exponential functions. For example, identify percent rate of change in functions such as y = (1.02) to the 𝘵 power, 𝘺 = (0.97) to the 𝘵 power, 𝘺 = (1.01) to the 12𝘵 power, 𝘺 = (1.2) to the 𝘵/10 power, and classify them as representing exponential growth or decay.
