Closed Captioned Video: Algebra Applications: Exponential Functions, Segment 4: How Is Earthquake Magnitude Measured?
An earthquake is an example of a seismic wave. A wave can be modeled with a trigonometric function. Using the TI-Nspire, students link the amplitude to an exponential function to analyze the dramatic increase in intensity resulting from minor changes to magnitude.
