Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform.

Exponential Functions in Precalculus


We will explore exponential functions through graphing and describe the relationship to the compound interest formula.

Learning Targets: 
Graph exponential functions and identify the domain, range, and asymptotes of the function
Solve real-world problems with exponential models and graph exponential models
Interpret exponential models in terms of context
Compute interest when it is compounded continuously and understand the context of continuously compounded interest
Evaluate, compare, and explain results when using the continuously compounded interest formula and justify with logic and reasoning
