MAFS.912.F-BF.1.1a: Write a function that describes a relationship between two quantities. a. Determine an explicit expression, a recursive process, or steps for calculation from a context.

MAFS.912.F-IF.1.3: Recognize that sequences are functions, sometimes defined recursively, whose domain is a subset of the integers.

MAFS.912.F-LE.1.2: Construct exponential functions, including geometric sequences, given a graph, a description of a relationship, or two input-output pairs (include reading these from a table).

MAFS.912.F-LE.2.5: Interpret the parameters in a linear or exponential function in terms of a context.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

• determine if a function is exponential (geometric sequence) given a sequence, a graph, a verbal description or a table. • determine the common ratio between two terms in a geometric sequence. • write an exponential function from a geometric sequence, graph, table of values, or a description of the relationship. • describe the algebraic process used to construct the exponential function that passes through two points. • construct geometric sequences.
