Derivatives of Exponential Function Teacher Resources
Find Derivatives of Exponential Function educational ideas and activities
Students graph functions and their inverse. In this graphing functions and their inverse instructional activity, students plot a point and its' image. Students plot the exponential and logarithm functions. Students find the slope of the function and its inverse by taking the derivative.
In this 2-day lesson focused on exponents, middle schoolers will cross the curriculum by engaging in science, history and language arts activities. Exponential growth will be explored using grains of rice on a chess board. Exponential power, as well as the power of one, will be connected to a historical event as a way for the class to make connections to real-world events.
In this continuous probability distribution worksheet, students identify discrete and continuous distributions. They calculate the linear combination of the independent normal random variable and determine probabilities using exponential distribution. This 20 page worksheet contains approximately 100 problems. Explanations and examples are provided throughout the document.
High schoolers explore the concept of exponential growth. In this exponential growth lesson, students manipulate power models with base 2. High schoolers discuss what would happen if you doubled a penny over the course of 20 days. Students graph their results using a scatterplot.
Twelfth graders examine multiple aspects of statistics. In this mathematical reasoning lesson plan, 12th graders solve problems on probability, logarithms, exponential relationships and transforming rectilinear shapes. This resource contains several lessons which include extensions, vocabulary, and related activities.
Investigate logistic functions in a world population setting. High schoolers will create a scatter plot of the world population from 1950 to 2050 to find a logistic function to model the data. They then discuss the end behavior of their logistic model. Graphing calculators are needed.
High schoolers investigate logistic models by making a scatter plot of internet phone users over 5 years. They find a logistic model that fits their data and then discuss what the instantaneous rate of change means in the context of the problem. Very relevant and applicable!
Learners investigate sequences and series numerically, graphically, and symbolically. In this sequences and series lesson, students use their Ti-89 to determine if a series is convergent. Learners find the terms in a sequence and series and graph them. Students use summation notation to determine the sum of a sequence.
