Given a table, equation or written description of an exponential function, graph that function and determine its key features.
Key features are limited to domain; range; intercepts; intervals where the function is increasing, decreasing, positive or negative; constant percent rate of change; end behavior and asymptotes.
Clarification 2: Instruction includes representing the domain and range with inequality notation, interval notation or set-builder notation.
Clarification 3: Within the Algebra 1 course, notations for domain and range are limited to inequality and set-builder.
Clarification 4: Within the Algebra 1 course, exponential functions are limited to the forms
, where b is a whole number greater than 1 or a unit fraction or , where .
