Exploration 1: Exponential Functions Please work on the exploration on page 22 in your textbooks.
Ex 2: Find the zeros of You should be able to answer this question using Graphing – Math:Zeros Algebraically Numerically – Graphing Calc (solve, zeros)
Ex 3: Applications – Radioactive Decay Suppose the half-life of a certain radioactive substance is 20 days and that there are 5 grams present initially. When will there be only 1 gram of the substance remaining?
Determine how much time is required for an investment to double in value if interest is earned at the rate of 6.25% A) compounded monthly. B) compounded continuously. Ex 3: Applications – Compound Interest
Review from Algebra 1 & 2 Refresh your memory on the rules of exponents on page 23. Look at the problems in the Quick Review 1.3 on page 26. Do you have any questions??
