Exploring the Exponential Function

Students investigate exponential growth and decay.  In this exponential growth and decay lesson, students plot data on the cooling of a hot cup of coffee and the interest on a principal amount.  Students discuss how various b-values affect the shape of the graph.  Students make a scatter plot of exponential data and find a model to fit the data.

Lesson Planet was a great help to me during my student teaching. The site allowed me to find the lessons and support materials necessary for me to create lesson plans.
