Introduction to exponentials and exponential curves

(6)
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

tweeked version of the resource first put up by Holyhead. Changed the definitions to make it more suitable to my pupils . An activity for that short but vital task of sorting out the difference between these 4 types of algebraic notation. Firstly a MATCH-UP activity (the preview does not indicate the matches!) of the definitions for each of the 4, then a sorting and grouping activity with examples of each. Lastly, something to do with each type - substituting, solving, identifying and proving. Answers provided Also plenary/starter activity for AFL ppt on identifying correctly
