TODAY IN ALGEBRA…  Warm up: Sequences  Learning Target 1: 8.6 You will write and graph exponential decay functions.  Learning Target 2: You will use what you understand about exponential functions to find geometric sequences  Independent Practice/HW #4 Due Today  CH. 8 TEST FRIDAY!

WARM UP: Complete the Arithmetic and Geometric sequences half sheet. We will go over the solutions as a class. 42 86 42 86

8.6 EXPONENTIAL DECAY FUNCTIONS x-2012 y Check to make sure that the x’s are increasing by 1. Find what number the previous term is MULTIPLIED by to get the next term. This will be b in your equation. This will be a in your equation.

8.6 EXPONENTIAL DECAY FUNCTIONS

8.5 EXPONENTIAL GROWTH FUNCTIONS

8.6 EXPONENTIAL DECAY FUNCTIONS Initial amount Decay rate Time period Decay factor

8.5 EXPONENTIAL GROWTH FUNCTIONS EXAMPLE: The number of acres of Ponderosa pine forests decreased in the western US from 1963 to 2002 by 0.5% annually. In 1963 there were about 41 million acres of Ponderosa pine forests. *Must write the rate as a decimal! t=After 39 years In millions

8.5 EXPONENTIAL GROWTH FUNCTIONS COMPOUND INTEREST: A farmer bought a tractor in 1999 for \$30,000. The value of the tractor has been decreasing at a rate of 18% per year. What was the approximate value of the tractor in 2005? *Must write the rate as a decimal!
