Test 2 Review Sheet: Modules 4 & 5 Exponential & Logarithmic Functions Be able to determine the exponential growth/decay factor and 1-unit growth/decay rate, given exponential data points in a table or graph. Be able to find the yearly or monthly growth factor for an exponential function when the growth factor for n years is known. Understand and describe the meaning of exponential growth or decay, in terms of multiplicative growth/1-unit growth factor. Be able to examine patterns in data to determine if a function is growing at an exponential rate of change versus growing at a constant rate of change. Create an exponential function given two points that lie on the function. Be able to find a and b in the formula f ( t ) = ab t given two points that lie on the graph of an exponential function. Remember that t is the time, f ( t ) is the output amount, a is the initial amount, b is the growth or decay factor, and new amount / old amount = b = 1 + r , where r is the percent change or rate.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
