- F.IF.C.7.E: Graph exponential and logarithmic functions, showing intercepts and end behavior, and trigonometric functions, showing period, midline, and amplitude.
- F.IF.C.8.B: Use the properties of exponents to interpret expressions for exponential functions. For example, identify percent rate of change in functions such as y = (1.02)ᵗ, y = (0.97)ᵗ, y = (1.01)12ᵗ, y = (1.2)ᵗ/10, and classify them as representing exponential growth or decay.
- F.LE.A.1.C: Recognize situations in which a quantity grows or decays by a constant percent rate per unit interval relative to another.
- F.LE.A.1.A: Prove that linear functions grow by equal differences over equal intervals, and that exponential functions grow by equal factors over equal intervals.
- F.LE.A.2: Construct linear and exponential functions, including arithmetic and geometric sequences, given a graph, a description of a relationship, or two input-output pairs (include reading these from a table).
- F.LE.A.3: Observe using graph and tables that a quantity increasing exponentially eventually exceeds a quantity increasing linearly, quadratically, or (more generally) as a polynomial function.
- F.LE.B.5: Interpret the parameters in a linear or exponential function in terms of a context.
- A.SSE.B.3.C: Use the properties of exponents to transform expressions for exponential functions
