Exponential growth: PaperTearing


Exponential decline: The Ozone Layer

The exponential chapter of Graphic Algebra takes students through a variety of tasks begining with a simple double function in a paper tearing context and moving through to looking at population doubling times around the world.

A supplement to introduce the use of the symbolic features of the TI89 is provided here for Paper Tearing and Ozone Layer problems.

A pre-test and post-test are also available.

Exponential and Log Transformations

Four spreadsheets developed by Alan Benetto at Westbourne Grammar School that show transformations of the exponential and log functions.
