In this mathematics lesson students learn about plotting exponential graphs on Cartesian axes. As learning progresses they begin to model exponential growth and use the graphs to find approximate solutions to exponential equations.
Interactive 4 part PowerPoint with solutions.
Independent learning worksheet with progressively challenging questions. Solutions included.
