Linear and Exponential Change: Comparing Growth Rates

This Linear and Exponential Change: Comparing Growth Rates lesson plan also includes:

This thirteen-page PowerPoint presentation guides geometry learners in interpreting linear functions, linear data and their trend lines, the consequences of their constant rate of change, and growth rate. Real-life models including step-by-step solutions, graphs, and functions are used to compare the characteristics of linear and non-linear functions, especially  exponential verses linear. Learners also explain the initial values and growth rates in practical terms.
