Sal continues his discussion of decay by showing students the math involved in determining how much a substance is left after one half-life, two half-lives, and even three half-lives have gone by. He sets up a general function of time that can be used to determine the remaining amount of a substance after 10 minutes, or three billion years have elapsed!
Explore differential equations by using models representing growth and decline. Using calculus, learners will investigate exponential and logistic growth in the context of several models representing the growth or decline of a population. Most of the models have a closed-form solutions. Problems and solutions are included.
In this function worksheet, students use various methods to solve functions. They explore the logarithm function, the derivative of an exponential function, and compose a function with a linear equation. This four-page worksheet contains explanations, examples, and four problems.
High schoolers explore the calculator function of the TI-Nspire. In this secondary mathematics lesson, students investigate many of the features of the calculator function of the TI-Nspire. High schoolers review basic computation, square roots, absolute values, exponential functions, logarithmic functions, trigonometric functions, summations and matrices as they explore the TI-Npsire.
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.
