Students solve problems using algebraic exponential properties. In this algebra lesson, students write an equation given a graph of an exponential function.
In this power functions instructional activity, high schoolers read about determining the brightness of stars using a magnitude scale. Students solve 4 problems including finding the magnitude differences of stars and determining equivalent magnitudes.
Students identify the different properties of exponential functions. In this algebra activity, students graph and analyze exponential functions as it relates to growth and decay. They apply the laws of exponents to add, subtract, multiply and divide exponential functions.
Texas Instruments has composed yet another lesson to get your class using the TI-Inspire calculator to solve power and root functions. They find similarities and differences in the graphs of even and odd power and root functions then group them as families of functions. They then examine the inverse relationship among these functions.
This activity consists of three exercises in which learners sketch the graphs of various power functions on the same axes. They use their sketches to make comparisons and observations which lead to generalizations about the graphs of power functions. To aid them in their exploration, students compute specified function values at key points and find points of intersection of the graphs. The graphs can be sketched by hand or with the use of a graphing calculator.
Young mathematicians learn to write algebraic equations. They solve and graph different polynomial functions with different powers. They then graph radicals and identify the domain and range.
For this math worksheet, students are given 17 mathematical expressions involving rational exponents and power functions to simplify.
High schoolers compare and contrast exponential and power functions. In this precalculus lesson, students identify the value of x, using the graph as a visual. They compare functions with base of greater than one, to base of less than one.
Exponential functions are the name of the game. Young mathematicians can work through each of the eight worksheets by evaluating functions, applying logarithms, completing logarithmic functions, and building inverse functions. This would be a great set of worksheets to accompany an entire chapter.
Pupils differentiate between exponential and power functions. They identify the base, exponent and properties of exponential functions. They also graph the functions using the TI calculator.
High schoolers explore a variety of ways of solving quadratic equations. Students choose from graphing, factoring, finding square roots, completing the square and using the Quadratic formula. They ponder in the end on polynomial equations.
Students define rational functions and solve to find the long run behavior. In this algebra lesson plan, students identify functions by the given formula, from a graph or from a horizontal asymptote describing the long run behavior of a rational function.
High schoolers examine the wattage of a light bulb using math. In this algebra lesson, students find the inverse square of given parameter. They work in groups collecting and analyzing data.
Students add subtract and multiply rational functions. In this algebra lesson, students identify the domain and range of each function. They predict the end behavior of the graph based on the power of the polynomial.
Young scholars investigate scatterplots for the-line of best fit or linear regression. In this statistics lesson plan, students collect data, graph and analyze it using graphs. They differentiate between inductive and deductive reasoning.
Pupils graph polynomial functions and analyze the graphs. They identify the inverse of the functions and find the domain and range. Learners will then label the functions as one to one and use the horizontal and vertical line test to verify functions.
Learners describe the end behavior of polynomial functions. Pupils relate the behavior of the graph to the exponent of the graph. They differentiate graphs with odd-exponent and graphs with even exponents.
In this differentiation quiz worksheet, students solve 10 short answer problems. Students differentiate rational equations, trig functions, exponential models, higher order polynomials, etc.
Ideal for your electricity unit, especially with middle schoolers, this lesson gets engineers using multimeters in electrical circuits to explore the relationships among voltage, current, and resistance. Older learners may even plot data on graphs to see the E-I curves. It's a full-fledged resource for your physical science learners!
