- Students will identify the characteristics of graphs of exponential functions of the form f(x) = abx
- Students will describe how the parameters a and b affect the graphs of exponential functions of the form f(x) = abx, where a ≠ 0 and b > 0, b ≠ 1
About the Lesson
This lesson involves moving a slider to investigate the effect of different a-values on f(x) = a*bx. As a result, students will:
- Explore specific values of a and b, and then generalize the effects of both a and b on the graph, the domain, and the range of the graph of an exponential function.
