This unit addresses exponential and power functions. Throughout the course, students will be comparing and contrasting power functions; including end behavior, maximum and minimums, and symmetry. They will also compare and contrast characteristics of exponential functions in order to enrich the understanding of exponential growth and decay. Real world situations will be explored, such as, compound interest, carbon-14 dating and bacterial growth. This unit should take approximately 8 to 9 weeks in a traditional hourly schedule.
