Graphing Exponential Functions of Growth and Decay
- Patricia Zeran
How to use this worksheet.
Left of the graph, you will find the following: - f(x) - the function in the form f(x) = a(b)^x - Sliders for changing the values of a and b in the function - Point A, the y-intercept of the function's graph 1) Drag the red slider, a. Notice the change to the graph and the function f(x). 2) Reset slider a to the value of 1. 3) Now drag the blue slider, b. Notice the change to the graph and the function f(x). To use this worksheet to graph a specific exponential function, adjust both sliders to your desired values.
