Compare key features of linear and nonlinear functions each represented algebraically, graphically, in tables or written descriptions.

*Clarification 2*: Within the Algebra 1 course, functions other than linear, quadratic or exponential must be represented graphically.

*Clarification 3*: Within the Algebra 1 course, instruction includes verifying that a quantity increasing exponentially eventually exceeds a quantity increasing linearly or quadratically.

Comparing Linear and Exponential Functions | Students are given a linear function represented by an equation and an exponential function represented by a graph in a real-world context and are asked to compare the rates of change of the two functions. |

Nonlinear Functions | Students are asked to provide an example of a nonlinear function and explain why it is nonlinear. |

Compare Linear and Exponential Functions | Students are asked to compare a linear function and an exponential function in context. |
