Product Description
If you would like to download just one of these files, contact me and I'll set up a listing for you. A single file is \$1.

This file includes 11 resource files for an introduction to exponential functions:

- Evaluating Exponential Expressions
- Graphing Exponential Functions
- Exponential Growth and Decay

You will download a .zip file from which 11 .doc files can be extracted.

Each file includes a key for the notes and practice problems. The files include guided notes, homework, and two mini-activities. See descriptions below:

1 - Population Growth Intro Activity: Students compare and contrast linear and exponential functions through graphing and verbal descriptions.

2a - Exponents Review: A review of exponents, including negative exponents.

2b - Evaluating Exponentials: Practice evaluating exponential expressions.

3 - Graphing Exponentials: Guided notes and practice for graphing exponential functions, including those with vertical shifts.
Note: I teach graphing differently than a lot of teachers; the answer key to this file gives a detailed description of my method.
Note: File #3 can be downloaded on its own for \$1 at

4 - Writing Equations: Guided notes and practice writing equations of exponential functions based on verbal descriptions, tables, and graphs.

5a - Exponential Growth Notes: Guided notes for exponential growth.

5b - Exponential Growth HW: Practice homework about exponential growth.

6a - Exponential Decay Notes: Guided notes for exponential decay.

6b - Exponential Decay HW: Practice homework about exponential decay.

7 - Exponential Decay Activity: Students drop M&Ms and record (and remove) the number that land "M-up," creating an exponential decay function.

8 - Exponential Growth and Decay Summary and Practice: Summary and mixed practice with exponential growth and decay problems.

Common Core Standards:

A-CED.1 Create equations in one variable and use them to solve problems. Include equations arising from exponential functions.

F-IF.7e Graph exponential functions.

F-IF.8b Use the properties of exponents to interpret expressions for exponential functions.

F-LE.2 Construct exponential functions given a graph, a description of a relationship, or two input-output pairs (include reading these from a table)

F-LE.5 Interpret the parameters in an exponential function in terms of a context

S-ID.6 Fit a function to the data; use functions fitted to data to solve problems in the context of the data.
