Exponential functions 2 - Growth and Decay

Exponential functions 2 - Growth and Decay

Second in a series of lessons on exponentials, particularly growth and decay. Devised to work with IB SL. worked through examples, reflection, group work and individual work built in as well discussion points. Hope you enjoy please leave feedback thank you

Introduction to exponentials and exponential curves

Introduction to exponentials and exponential curves

Aimed at first lesson with KS4/5 pupils on exponentials. (will be using it with my IB year 12s) Covers what an exponential is, recaps the index laws (rules of exponents), links in to domain and range of functions and transforming functions so would work well after covering those topics. discussion tasks, starter activity, drawing and comparing graphs hope you enjoy, please leave feedback in a review (the 2 files are basically the same, one with UK terms used the other with the terms needed in the IB) cheers

Logarithms and Trigonometry Spot the Mistake

Logarithms and Trigonometry Spot the Mistake

I made this for my A Level (second year) students, to address misconceptions surrounding trigonometry, logs, natural logs and exponentials. In each case, I got them to explain what is wrong with each "solution", then work together to create a correct version.

Can you crack the code? Demanding AS Level revision - perfect for new spec - problem solving!!!

Can you crack the code? Demanding AS Level revision - perfect for new spec - problem solving!!!

For these lessons, I have a wooden box which I fill full of goodies (fruits, sweets etc). I then have a large metal chain wrapped around the box with a colourful padlock on (all of which builds the tension...). The aim is for the students to work away in pairs to crack the code! If you don't want to purchase the box etc, the worksheet works perfectly well on it's own. Note: the solution for this worksheet is 8224. This worksheet is a real challenge for your KS5 students - perfect for the new AS Level demands.
