Continuous Growth and the Number e
This Continuous Growth and the Number e lesson plan also includes:
Students differentiate between exponential growth and decay. In this algebra lesson plan, students identify the continuous growth rate of a function. They relate growth, continuous growth and decay to Euler's number.
