Algebra Nspirations: Exponents and Exponential Functions

Almost everyone has an intuitive understanding that exponential growth means rapid growth. Written and hosted by internationally acclaimed math educator Dr. Monica Neagoy, this video builds on students’ intuitive notions, explores exponential notation, and analyzes properties of exponential function graphs, with the help of TI-Nspire features such as sliders and graph transformations. Using exponential functions to model finance applications and a Newton’s law of cooling problem further help students build a solid foundation for these fundamental algebraic concepts. Concepts explored: functions, exponents, exponential functions.
