Explore the concept of graphing exponential functions. High school mathematicians are given exponential functions such as y=2*3^x, and they graph them on a coordinate plane.  They are given two exponential graphs and must write an equation to match the graph.
Perform transformations on exponential functions! Teach your class how to perform dilation, compression, and translation. They graph exponential functions using the TI Calculator.
Tenth graders study graphing exponential functions. In this transformations instructional activity, 10th graders apply inquiry to determine how changes to a parent function affect its graph. Students analyze transformed graphs and generate the function that matches the graph given the equation of the parent function.
Students explore exponential function through graphing and investigating patterns of graphs. They graph exponential functions and relate these functions to real world applications of functions. Afterward, they discuss and compare peer graphs.
Algebra scholars read about and practice problems involving exponents. They solve problems by using common exponential rules for multiplying and dividing exponents. They use prior knowledge of logarithms to solve exponential problems. Each of the three lessons in this unit includes a detailed explanation and a set of practice problems. Answers are included at the end of the packet.
Bring your Algebra class to the computer lab! Using materials created by Texas Instruments, they explore exponentiasl and graphs. Be sure to download the correct materials (on the right side of the webpage) before having them walk through the day's lesson plan. There's an interactive graphing feature, too, hopefully shedding some light on increasing and decreasing functions. 
Bring functions to life! Not only does this app graph a number of different types of equations, it also allows the user to easily change the graph by moving different slides and seeing the result.  
Designed to be an online, interactive instructional activity, this set of problems is focused around exponential functions. There are five questions provided, and one asks the learners to choose the correct graph. If you print this out, you'll miss using the "hint" provided for each question. 
This lesson begins with a review of linear functions and segues nicely over its fifteen examples and problems into a deep study of exponential functions. Linear and exponential growth are compared in an investment task. Data tables are used to explore and practice the idea of common ratios to recognize exponential functions. Graphing calculators assist learners in finding the characteristics of an exponential function and the calculating of inputs and outputs of functions is described and practiced. Finally, learners practice writing exponential equations from given data.
Your learners analyze the familiar model of a cold beverage warming when it is taken out of the refrigerator. The general form of the equation and its graph are presented. Learners learn about the specific pieces of the function by interpreting the graph. 
The investigation of exponential equation in the context of increasing college tuition costs is explored through this lessib.  Students write exponential equations based on the percent of change of college tuition and use their equations to do analysis and make predictions.
If the flu outbreak continues, exams will have to be canceled. Investigate the properties of exponential and logarithmic functions. In this algebra lesson, students use the TI to examine and differentiate between exponential growth and decay. They relate math to the real world by creating models.
Students explore the concepts of exponential growth and decay.  In this Algebra II lesson plan, the students use a variety of teaching resources, including the web, and modeling and experimentation, to identify exponential growth or decay and sole related problems. 
Analyze functions by their shape and equation and identify decay and growth based on the equation given. Learners graph their exponential functions and differentiate it using the logarithmic versus the exponential function.
Students will solve exponential function problems, graph exponential functions, find the value of logarithms, determine future value, and compound interest. In this Pre-calculus lesson, students will use the properties of logs to solve test problems.
Learners solve exponential problems. In this algebra lesson, students graph exponential functions and solve using addition, subtraction, multiplication and division properties.
Students explore the concept of exponents. In this exponential functions worksheet, students complete provided worksheets that require them to graph exponential functions by hand as well using graphing calculators.
Students solve and graph exponential functions. For this algebra lesson, students identify function notations and discuss the different properties of exponential functions. They relate linear functions to the real world.
Students explore the concept of exponential functions. In this exponential functions lesson, students model exponential growth about a high school population using an applet. Students manipulate the applet to show the effect that a change in the values of a, b, h, and k have on the equation.
Students explore the concept of linear and exponential growth. In this linear and exponential growth lesson, students collect data about China's population. Students model the data to determine if it is linear or exponential.
