## Topic

Functions

## Description

This clip art illustrates an exponential function graph. Exponential functions are unique in that they show rapid growth or decay, depending on their base. This graph passes the vertical line test, confirming its status as a function.

Exponential functions are crucial in modeling various real-world phenomena, such as population growth, radioactive decay, and compound interest. Their distinctive shape, with a horizontal asymptote and ever-increasing (or decreasing) slope, makes them easily recognizable and important in many fields of study.

Visualizing exponential functions helps students understand concepts like growth rate, asymptotic behavior, and the difference between linear and non-linear growth. This graph can be used to introduce logarithms as the inverse of exponential functions.

**Teacher's Script:** "Look at how this curve grows increasingly steep. Can you identify the y-intercept? Let's discuss what happens as x gets very large or very negative. How might this type of growth appear in real-world situations?"
