Unit 2: Linear and Exponential Relationships


In this unit students will build on the work they have already done with linear relationships. While they will see and work with other function families, the emphasis will be on linear and exponential families. They will compare and contrast the properties of linear and exponential functions. They will spend time working to understand functions as an important mathematical structure by examining function characteristics, notation, representations, and operations of specific function families. Students will practice building functions that describe the relationship between two quantities from a context. They will look at multiple ways to apply functions to solve problems and represent situations. They will also work with sets of order pairs that do not represent functions.
