Graphing Exponential Functions

This Graphing Exponential Functions lesson plan also includes:

Once you know how to graph y = b^x, the sky's the limit. Young mathematicians learn to graph basic exponential functions and identify key features, and then graph functions of the form f(x) = ab^(xh) + k from the function f(x) = b^x.
