In what ways are linear and exponential functions similar? In what ways are quadratic and exponential functions similar?
Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.
This expectation represents major work of high school and includes modeling (★) outcomes.
How can observing the connections between table, graph, and function notation help you better understand the function?
In Grade 8, students understand that the ratio of the rise and run for any two distinct points on a line is the same and that this concept is referred to as slope or as rate of change.
Model with mathematics.
To support the high school major work of deeply understanding functions, students’ work with linear and exponential functions as models of real-world phenomena lends itself to reasoning, analysis, comparison, and generalizations about linear and exponential functions.
Look for and make use of structure.
