Growth vs. Decay 
Factors, Rates & Initial Values 
Equations from Context 
Equations from a Table 
Students will be able to:
· Identify whether a graph represents exponential growth or decay.
· Identify whether an equation represents exponential growth or decay. The base may be in the form of a whole number, decimal, proper and improper fraction.

Students will be able to:
· Identify the growth/decay factor and the growth/decay rate given an exponential growth or decay equation. The factor may be in the form of a whole number, decimal, proper and improper fraction.
· Identify the initial value from an exponential growth or decay equation.
· Convert a factor to a rate
· Convert a decimal to a percent. 
Students will be able to:
· Identify an initial value in context.
· Convert a percent to a decimal. (rate)
· Convert a rate to a factor.
· Write exponential growth or decay models using the initial value and factor.
· Use an exponential equation to make predictions when given an input or output.

Students will be able to:
· Identify whether a given table represents an exponential growth or decay model.
· Calculate the growth/decay factor by dividing an output by the previous output.
· Calculate differences in consecutive outputs if the factor is not apparent.
· Extend a table, using the growth/decay factor, to find the initial value.
· Use the initial value and factor to write an exponential equation.
