FUNctions

What am I going to learn?Concept of an exponential growth and decay function
Models for exponential growth/decay

New ConceptsIndependent variable is another name for domain or input, which is typically but not always represented using the variable, x.Dependent variable(function value) is another name for range or output, which is typically but not always represented using the variable, y.

What is an exponential growth/decay FUNction?Exponential Growth FUNction The function value (y) is increasing exponentially if it increases by the same rate in each unit of input (x).
Exponential Decay FUNction The function value (y) is decreasing exponentially if it decreases by the same rate in each unit of input (x).

What is a quantity increases exponentially for each unit of the input?Initial Layer 11st Layer 32nd Layer 93rd Layer 27

What is a quantity decreases exponentially for each unit of the input?Initial Square Area = 322321st Square Area = 1622nd Square Area = 823rd Square Area = 424th Square Area = 221684

What is an exponential function?Obviously, it must have something to do with an exponent!An exponential function is a function whose independent variable is an exponent.

From the tree structure example, if the input (independent) variable x = the layer number, and the output (dependent) variable y = the number of nodes, student A, B, and C wrote 3 equations that best described the information in the slide. Group Activity 1Student A wroteStudent B wroteStudent C wroteIdentify which student is correct. How do you know? Then explain why the other students are not correct.

Student B is correct. He/She knows the quantity (y) increases 3 times as the layer number (x) is increased by 1. Student A is not correct. Although he/she related y and x exponentially, the number of nodes in the current layer is not related the layer number correctly.Student C is not correct. He/She wrote an equation that related y and x linearly instead of an exponential one. This student may just noticed the pattern was time 3 and may not have known what to do with it.

From the square area example, if the input (independent) variable x = the time of division, and the output (dependent) variable y = area of colored square, student A, B, and C wrote 3 equations that best described the information in the slide. Group Activity 2Student A wroteStudent B wroteStudent C wroteIdentify which student is correct. How do you know? Then explain why the other students are not correct.

Student C is correct. He/She knows the quantity of the area (y) decreases times as the number of times of division (x) is increased by 1. He/She related the quantities y and x correctly.Student A is not correct. Although he/she related y and x exponentially, the area in each division is not related to the number of times of division correctly.Student B is not correct. He/She wrote an equation that related y and x exponentially, however, he/she did not related the quantity of area to the number of times of division correctly. This student may just noticed the pattern was time and may not have known what to do with it correctly.

What does an exponential function look like?

The Basis of BasesThe base of an exponential function carries much of the meaning of the function.The base determines exponential growth or decay.The base is a positive number; however, it cannot be 1.

Exponential Growth/DecayAn exponential function models growth whenever its base > 1. (Why?)If the base b > 1, then b is referred to as the growth factor.An exponential function models decay whenever its base < 1. (Why?)If the base b < 1, then b is referred to as the decay factor.

In many cases, quantity does not increases by theinteger number of times, instead, the quantity increases by the some rate r in each time period t. When this happens, the value of the quantity at any given time can be calculated as a function of the rate and the initial amount. C is the initial amount.t is the time period.(1 + r) is the growth factor, r is the growth rate.y = C (1 + r)tExponential Growth

If a quantity increases by the same proportion r in each unit of time, then the quantity displays exponential growth and can be modeled by the equationWhereC = initial amountr = growth rate (percent written as a decimal)t = time where t 0(1 + r) = growth factor where 1 + r > 1

C is the initial amount.t is the time period.(1 r ) is the decay factor, r is the decay rate.y = C (1 r)tIn many cases, quantity does not decreases by , 1/3, , etc, instead, the quantity decreases by the some rate r in each time period t. When this happens, the value of the quantity at any given time can be calculated as a function of the rate and the initial amount. Exponential Decay

If a quantity decreases by the same proportion r in each unit of time, then the quantity displays exponential decay and can be modeled by the equationWhereC = initial amountr = growth rate (percent written as a decimal)t = time where t 0(1 r) = decay factor where 1 r < 1

C is the initial amount.t is the time period.(1 + r) is the growth factor, r is the growth rate.y = C (1 + r)tC is the initial amount.t is the time period.(1 r ) is the decay factor, r is the decay rate.y = C (1 r)t
