Unit 8 Objectives

I can ...
determine the domain and range of exponential functions of the form  f(x) = abˣ and represent the domain and range using inequalities.
interpret the meaning of the values of a and in exponential functions of the form f(x) = abˣ in real-world problems.
write exponential functions in the form f(x) = abˣ (where b is a rational number) to describe problems arising from mathematical and real-world situations, including growth and decay.
graph exponential functions that model growth and decay and identify key features, including y-intercept and asymptote, in mathematical and real-world problems.
write, using technology, exponential functions that provide a reasonable fit to data and make predictions for real-world problems.
