Exponential Growth And Decay Example 1

Here is an example of how to determine if a graph is exponential growth or decay.  Remember to read the lesson on this topic. Basic steps to follow: 1. Both exponential growth and decay are functions- i.e. there graphs pass the vertical line test 2. Exponential function graphs slope upward from left to right- decay […]

Linear And Non-Linear Functions Example 1

Here is an example of the graph of a non-linear function.  Remember to read the lesson on this topic. Basic steps to follow: 1. First identify what type of function you have- example, exponential, log, trig, linear, etc 2. If asked to graph the function sketch the basic graph with a few key reference points […]

Linear and Non-linear Functions

Linear functions, non-linear functions..who cares!  Well if you like good grades in algebra then you want to take “care” on understanding the differences between various functions.  Linear functions are lines and non-linear functions are other shapes like parabolas.  As long as you have a basic idea of the different type of functions you will be […]

Exponential Growth and Decay

Exponential growth and decay is just a description on how something grows or decays overtime. Example, lets say you have two rabbits and they have babies and their babies have babies and so forth- it wont be long until you have a backyard full of rabbits- can you say Bugs Bunny!  This kind of “explosive” […]
