This product contains guided notes, a whiteboard basketball practice game, and a worksheet. There are two main types of problems covered. The first type of problem gives students a function rule with a coefficient on x in the exponent and asks them to determine the rate of change. The second type of problem requires students to understand how to graph an exponential function based off of the y-intercept and whether the function is increasing or decreasing. The whiteboard basketball reviews the concepts covered in the guided notes. There are 12 problems in the game. The worksheet contains 8 problems. Answer keys included.
