Unit 6 – Exponential Functions and Applications

Overview This unit will be focusing on exponential functions. We will start by reviewing exponent rules, looking at rational exponents (exponents that have fraction exponents), then we will use function notation to make data tables and graph those. There are MANY applications to exponents, many used in everyday life. We will explore how to create exponential expressions based on contexts Read More …

A Guide to Completing The Square (the big idea)

Completing the square is one of the most vital ways for Algebra 2 students to identify the vertex of a function (this likely means the maximum or the minimum of the graph). We will need to use completing the square to convert standard form functions to vertex form. This will be another tool that can help us graph functions and Read More …
