Determining Precision

ComPLEtINg thE SquArE wIth EXPrESSIoNS Avoid Common Errors Some students may not pay attention to whether b is positive or negative, since c is positive regardless of the sign of b. Have student change the sign of b in some problems and compare the factored forms of both expressions. questioning Strategies In a perfect square trinomial, is the last term always positive? Explain. es, a perfect square trinomial can be either (a + b)2 or (a – b)2 which can be factored as (a + b)2 = a 2 + 2ab = b 2 and (a – b)2 = a 2 + 2ab = b 2. In both cases the last term is positive. reflect 3. The sign of b has no effect on the sign of c because c = ( b __ 2 ) 2 and a nonzero number squared is always positive. Thus, c is always positive. c = ( b __ 2 ) 2 and a nonzero number c = ( b __ 2 ) 2 and a nonzero number

Math Background Geometric Sequences

COMMON CORE

F-LE.A.2

LESSON 14.1 Informally, we move from one term of an arithmetic sequence to the next by addition. In a geometric sequence, we move from one term to the next by multiplication. More precisely, in a geometric sequence, the ratio of each term to the preceding term is constant. This constant is called the common ratio. The sequence 1, 3, 9, 27, 81, . . . is an example of a geometric sequence. The common ratio is 3. Each term of the sequence is multiplied by 3 to get the next term.

Exponential Functions

COMMON CORE

F-IF.C.7e

LESSONS 14.3 and 14.4 To understand the connection between geometric sequences and exponential functions, we begin with the definition of exponential function: a function of the form y = ab x, where a and b are real numbers, a ≠ 0, b > 0, and b ≠ 1. In this course, students have seen b x defined for limited x-values only (namely, rational numbers), but the domain of an exponential function can be the set of all real numbers. Students will fill in this gap in future courses and can be assured in the meantime that they may draw a smooth, continuous curve when graphing an exponential function. For a > 0, the range of an exponential function is the set of all positive real numbers, as illustrated in the x graph of y = 3(2) .

When the domain is restricted to whole numbers, the graph becomes a set of discrete points, the first few of which are shown above. The points’ y-values are 3, 6, 12, ... ; this is n–1 precisely the geometric sequence defined by a n = 3(2) . In other words, a geometric sequence is simply an exponential function with a restricted domain. (Note that the domain is usually restricted to the set of whole numbers greater than 0, so that the first term of the sequence corresponds to the input value 1 rather than to 0.)

Exponential Growth and Decay

COMMON CORE

F-LE.A.1c

LESSON 15.2 Exponential growth and decay are important applications of exponential functions. Exponential growth occurs when a quantity increases by the same rate in each time period. Thus, exponential growth can be understood as an extension of percent change in which a percent increase is repeatedly applied. Exponential decay occurs when a quantity decreases by the same rate in each time period and, like exponential growth, can be understood as an extension of percent change in which a percent decrease is repeatedly applied. In an exponential growth situation with initial amount a (a > 0) and rate of growth after one time period, r, expressed as a decimal, the new amount is a + ar, or a(1 + r). After the second time period, the new amount is 2 a(1 + r)(1 + r), or a(1 + r) . Continuing in this way shows that after t time periods, the final amount y is given by t y = a(1 + r) . For exponential decay, a similar argument shows that the final amount y after t time periods is given t by y = a(1 - r) . An important attribute of exponential growth and decay is the fact that the amount added or subtracted in each time period is proportional to the amount already present. For exponential growth, this means that as the amount becomes greater, the amount of increase in each time period also becomes greater. Contrast this to linear growth, in which the amount of increase remains constant.

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

COMMON CORE

S-ID.B.6a

LESSON 15.3 Exponential regression is the process of finding an exponential function that approximates the relationship between two variables in a data set. The original data, along with the best-fit curve given by the exponential regression process, can be represented on an scatter plot. The correlation coefficient (r) indicates how well the regression model fits the data. The exponential function y = f(x) = ab x can be used to model the data set. An exponential regression is used when a straight line does not fit the data, but an exponential function might. A residual is the difference between the observed y-value in the data set and the predicted y-value (y d – y m). Residuals can be used to assess how well a model fits a data set with the following guidelines: • The numbers of positive and negative residuals are roughly equal. • The residuals are randomly distributed about the x-axis, not in a pattern. • The absolute value of the residuals is small relative to the data.

Linear and Exponential Models

COMMON CORE

S-ID.B.6a

LESSON 15.4 A linear model should be used when the amount of increase or decrease in each interval is constant, such as a fixed dollar increase. An exponential model is appropriate when the increase or decrease per interval grows, such as a fixed percent increase. Consider the following situation. Two students each have $20 in savings. Student 1 increases how much he has saved by $4 per month by saving $4 per month. Student 2 increases how much he has saved by 1.5% per month. Graphing the above scenario shows the number of weeks it takes for Student 2 to have more money saved. Students’ Savings

Each element is called a term and has a position number.

UNDERSTAND VOCABULARY Use the following explanations to help students learn the preview words.

An explicit rule defines the nth term as a function of n and can be used to find any specific term without finding any of the previous terms.

In an exponential function the independent variable is an exponent. If the function increases as the independent variable increases, it models exponential growth. If the function decreases as the independent variable increases, it models exponential decay.

A recursive rule defines the nth term by relating it to one or more previous terms. It cannot directly be used to find a specific term.

To become familiar with some of the vocabulary terms in this unit, consider the following. You may refer to the module, the glossary, or a dictionary. 1.

Exploring Growth Patterns of Geometric Sequences

1.

Suppose you know the twelfth term in a geometric sequence. What do you need to know to find the thirteenth term? How would you use that information to find the thirteenth term? You need to know the common ratio, r. You can multiply the twelfth term by r.

2.

Discussion Suppose you know only that 8 and 128 are terms of a geometric sequence. Can you find the term that follows 128? If so, what is it? Only if you know that 8 and128 are successive terms. In that case, the common ratio is 32, and the next term is 4096. However, 8 and 128 could be terms of a different geometric sequence. For example, in the geometric sequence 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, ..., the next term is 256.

Comparing Growth Patterns of Arithmetic and Geometric Sequences

Recall that in arithmetic sequences, successive terms differ by the same nonzero number d, called the common difference. In geometric sequences, the ratio r of successive terms is constant. In this Explore, you will examine how the growth patterns in arithmetic and geometric sequences compare. In particular, you will look at the arithmetic sequence 3, 5, 7, ... and the geometric sequence 3, 6, 12, ... . Module 14

Comparing Growth Patterns of Arithmetic and Geometric Sequences QUESTIONING STRATEGIES How are the graphs of geometric sequences and arithmetic sequences alike? How are they different? Possible answer: They can both be represented by a function with a domain that is the set of positive integers, or a subset of consecutive positive integers beginning with 1. The graph of a geometric sequence follows a curve, while the graph of an arithmetic sequence is linear.

Example 1

Find the common ratio r for each geometric sequence and use r to find the next three terms.

QUESTIONING STRATEGIES In giving the formula for the nth term of a geometric sequence, why does the book say “For n ≥ 2”? It is understood that n is an integer. The first term of the sequence is f (1). For n = 0 and 1, f(n - 1) is not defined.

6, 12, 24, 48, … 12 = 2, so the common ratio r is 2. _ 6 For this sequence, ƒ(1) = 6, ƒ(2) = 12, ƒ(3) = 24, and ƒ(4) = 48. ƒ(4) = 48, so ƒ(5) = 48(2) = 96. ƒ(5) = 96, so ƒ(6) = 96(2) = 192. ƒ(6) = 192, so ƒ(7) = 192(2) = 384. The next three terms of the sequence are 96, 192, and 384.

100, 50, 25, 12.5, … 50 = 0.5 , so the common ratio r is _ 100

0.5 .

For this sequence, ƒ(1) = 100, ƒ(2) = 50, ƒ(3) = 25, and ƒ(4) = 12.5. ƒ(4) = 12.5, so ƒ(5) = 12.5 (0.5) = 6.25 . ƒ(5) = 6.25 , so ƒ(6) = 6.25 (0.5) = ƒ(6) =

Which rule, the recursive rule or the explicit rule, would be more useful in determining the 20th term of a given sequence? Explain your reasoning. The explicit rule is more useful because you can easily evaluate f (20) to find the 20th term. To use the recursive rule, you would have to calculate each successive term until you get to the 20th term.

AVOID COMMON ERRORS Some students may confuse the recursive and explicit rules. Remind students that the recursive rule for a geometric sequence is stated by providing the first term, ƒ(1), and the rule for terms after the first term, so f(n – 1), should appear in this rule. An explicit rule for a geometric sequence is stated by writing each term as the product of the first term and a power of the common ratio.

Using the text, review with them and help them differentiate the meaning of each of these terms. Point out that the word recursive begins with the prefix re-, which means again. Tell them to think about the word repeat. Recursive refers to a procedure that can be repeated over and over. Speakers of Spanish will likely connect this with the prefix re- in Spanish, which has the same meaning. Words such as repetir (repeat) and reforzar (reinforce) are examples of Spanish words with the re- prefix.

Explain 3

Constructing a Geometric Sequence Given Two Terms

EXPLAIN 3

The explicit and recursive rules for a geometric sequence can also be written in subscript notation. In subscript notation, the subscript indicates the position of the term in the sequence. a 1, a 2, and a 3 are the first, second, and third terms of a sequence respectively. In general, a n is the nth term of a sequence. Example 3

Constructing a Geometric Sequence Given Two Terms

Write an explicit rule for each sequence using subscript notation.

Photography The shutter speed settings on a camera form a geometric sequence where a n is the shutter speed in seconds and n is the setting number. The fifth setting on the 1 camera is __ second and the seventh setting on the camera 60 1 is __ second. 15

QUESTIONING STRATEGIES How is an explicit rule for a geometric sequence, written using function notation, related to an explicit rule for a geometric sequence, written using subscript notation? When the position numbers start with 1, the variable n is used in both notations to represent the nth term of the sequence. In both cases, the nth term is found by multiplying the first term by the common ratio raised to the power of (n - 1).

Identify the given terms in the sequence. 1 The fifth setting is __ second, so the 5th term of the 60 1 __ sequence is 60 .

1 a5 = _ 60 1 1 The seventh setting is __ second, so the 7th term of the sequence is __ . 15 15 1 a 7 = __ 15

12. What If Suppose you are given the terms a 3 and a 6 of a geometric sequence. How can you find the common ratio r? a6 Use the fact that a 6 = a 3 ∙ r ∙ r ∙ r = a 3 ∙ r 3 and find the cube root of a .

How can you write a recursive and an explicit rule for a geometric sequence? To write a recursive rule, assume f(1) is given and use the general rule f (n) = f (n−1) ∙r for each whole number n ≥ 2 , where r is the common ratio. To write an explicit rule, use the general rule f (n) = f (1) f (1)∙r n - 1, where f (1) is the first term in the sequence, r is the common ratio, and the domain of the function is the set of positive integers or a subset of consecutive positive integers beginning with 1.

13. If you know the second term and the common ratio of a geometric sequence, can you write an explicit rule for the sequence? If so, explain how. Yes; you can divide the second term by the common ratio to get the first term. Then, you

Use these values in the form f(n) = f(1) ∙ r n-1.

Constructing Geometric Sequences

658

Use the geometric sequence to help write a recursive rule and an explicit rule for any geometric sequence. For the general rules, the values of n are consecutive integers starting with 1.

AVOID COMMON ERRORS Some students may confuse the recursive and explicit rules for geometric sequences. Remind students that the recursive rule for a geometric sequence is stated by providing the first term, ƒ(1), and a rule for terms after the first term in terms of the previous term. Such a rule has the general form ƒ(n) = ƒ(n−1)∙ r , where r is the common ratio. An explicit rule for a geometric sequence is stated by indicating the domain of the sequence and giving a rule for the nth term, with the general form ƒ(n)= ƒ(1)∙ r n - 1 , where r is the common ratio. Show students examples.

Justify your answer. f(n) = 3.2 ∙ 1.04 n - 1 ; the cost in year 1, f(n), is $3.20. An increase of 4% means the cost is multiplied by 1.04, that is, f(n) = f(n) ∙ 1.04 b. What is the fourth term of the sequence? What does it represent in this situation? Justify your answer. $3.60; it represents the cost of the box of cereal in year 4. f(4) = 3.2 ∙ 1.04 3 = 3.6 26.

When you find the common ratio r, you have to consider both the positive and negative values. The term between the given terms might be negative or it might be positive. If it is positive, then the common ratio r is negative. If it is negative, then r is positive. You would have to consider both possibilities. If r > 0, then the first term must be negative. If r < 0, then the first term must be positive.

Have students investigate the Fibonacci sequence, a sequence that is neither arithmetic or geometric. The first two terms of the sequence are 1 and 1. Each term after that is generated by adding the previous two terms. The sequence is 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, …. Have students write a recursive rule for this sequence and extend the sequence for at least 4 more terms.

A recursive rule is a 1 = 1, a 2 = 1, a n = a n - 2 + a n - 1 for n ≥ 3. The next 4 terms are 21, 34, 55, 89.

Learning Progressions

4/19/14 10:25 AM

In this lesson, students learn how to identify and represent exponential functions. Some key understandings for students are as follows: • An exponential function can be represented by an equation of the form f (x)= abx, where a, b, and x are real numbers, a ≠ 0, b > 0, and b ≠ 1. • For an exponential function ƒ(x), if x is in the domain of the function, then the ratio of ƒ(x+1) to ƒ(x) is a constant ratio. In the next module, students will learn more about exponential functions, including exponential growth and decay functions.

Representing Discrete Exponential Functions

Explain 1

EXPLAIN 1

An exponential function is a function whose successive output values are related by a constant ratio. An exponential function can be represented by an equation of the form ƒ(x) = ab x, where a, b, and c are real numbers, a ≠ 0, b > 0, and b ≠ 1. The constant ratio is the base b.

Representing Discrete Exponential Functions

When evaluating exponential functions, you will need to use the properties of exponents, including zero and negative exponents. Recall that, for any nonzero number c: c 0 = 1, c ≠ 0

INTEGRATE MATHEMATICAL PRACTICES Focus on Math Connections MP.1 Point out that the constant b in a function of

1 , c ≠ 0. c -n = _ cn Example 1

the form f (x) = abx, where a and b are real numbers, a ≠ 0, b > 0, and b ≠ 1, corresponds to the common ratio, r, in a geometric sequence. Explain to students that if the domain of the function is the set of positive integers, the points of the graph of a discrete exponential function represent a geometric sequence. The x-values are the term numbers of the sequence and the y-values are the corresponding terms.

What If What would happen to the function ƒ(x) = ab x if a were 0? What if b were 1? If a = 0 then ƒ(x) = 0 for all x, and if b = 1, then ƒ(x) = a for all x. Neither of these constant functions are exponential functions.

3.

Discussion Why is a geometric sequence a discrete exponential function? A sequence is a function. When the input values increase by 1, the successive output values are related by a constant ratio, the common ratio. The general recursive rule for a geometric sequence is the form of an exponential function.

Constructing Exponential Functions from Verbal Descriptions

You can write an equation for an exponential function by finding or calculating the values of a and b. The value of a is ƒ(x + 1) the value of the function when x = 0. The value of b is the common ratio of successive function values, b = _______ . ƒ(x) For discrete functions with integer or whole number domains, these will be successive values of the function. Example 2

Write an equation for the function.

When a piece of paper is folded in half, the total thickness doubles. Suppose an unfolded piece of paper is 1 millimeter thick. The total thickness t(n) of the paper is an exponential function of the number of folds n. The value of a is the original thickness of the paper before any folds are made, or 1 millimeter. Because the thickness doubles with each fold, the value of b (the constant ratio) is 2. The equation for the function is t(n) = 0.1(2) . n

23. Explain the Error Biff observes that in every math test he has taken this year, he has scored 2 points higher than the previous test. His score on the first test was 56. He models his test scores with the exponential function s(n) = 28 · 2 n where s(n) is the score on his nth test. Is this a reasonable model based? Explain.

No; Biff’s test scores do not increase at a constant rate. Instead they go up by 2 points each test. His scores are not consistent with an exponential function. 24. Find the Error Kaylee needed to write the equation of an exponential function from points on the graph of the function. To determine the value of b, Kaylee chose the ordered pairs (1, 6) and (3, 54) and divided 54 by 6. She determined that the value of b was 9. What error did Kaylee make?

She should use ordered pairs with x-values that differ by 1. The value Kaylee found is not the constant ratio of successive values.

In ecology, an invasive species is a plant or animal species newly introduced to an ecosystem, often by human activity. Because invasive species often lack predators in their new habitat, their populations typically experience exponential growth. A small initial population grows to a large population that drastically alters an ecosystem. Feral rabbits that populate Australia and zebra mussels in the Great Lakes are two examples of problematic invasive species that grew exponentially from a small initial population.

Connect Vocabulary Make sure that students understand what is meant by the end behavior of a function. The end behavior of a function describes what happens to the function values as x gets larger and larger (for example, as x becomes 100, 1000, and 1,000,000) and what happens to the function values as the values of x get smaller and smaller (for example, as x becomes –100, –1000, and –1,000,000). So, end behavior describes what happens to f(x) when x is farther and farther to the right and what happens to f(x) when x is farther and farther to the left.

Why does it make sense for the graph of f (x) = ab x to stretch when a > 1, and for the graph to shrink when 0 < a < 1, compared to the graph of f (x) = b x ? Multiplying by a factor a greater than 1 increases the outputs, compared with the function f (x) = b x, and multiplying by a factor a between 0 and 1 decreases the outputs, compared with the function f (x) = b x.

Lesson Performance Task A pumpkin is being grown for a contest at the state fair. Its growth can be modeled by the n equation P = 25(1.56) , where P is the weight of the pumpkin in pounds and n is the number of weeks the pumpkin has been growing. How much does the pumpkin weigh after 5 weeks? By what percentage does the pumpkin grow every week? After how many weeks will the pumpkin be 80 pounds?

grew over the period of time until it reached 150 pounds. They could say that the pumpkin grew to a weight of 80 pounds in about 2.6 weeks, while it took about 4.9 weeks to gain another 70 pounds. They could also say that the rate provided in the first equation is 156% per week, while the second equation shows the rate declined to 123%.

After the pumpkin grows to 80 pounds, its growth is reduced to P = 25(1.23) . Estimate when the pumpkin will reach 150 pounds. n

P = 25(1.56) ≈ 230.97 pounds 5

The pumpkin grows by 56% every week. 80 = 25(1.56)

n

3.2 = (1.56)

n

In(3.2) = n • In(1.56) 1.16 ≈ .44n 2.6 ≈ n

The pumpkin will exceed 80 pounds after around 2.8 weeks. © Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishing Company

It only needs to grow 150 - 80 = 70 more pounds. Let P = 70 and solve the new equation. Add the solution to this equation to the original estimate to find the total time it will take to grow to 150 pounds. 70 = 25(1.23)

n

2.8 = (1.23)

n

In(2.8) = n • In(1.23) 1.03 ≈ .21n 4.9 ≈ n

Have students use the data they find to determine what the relationship appears to be between the over-the-top measurement in inches and the weight of a giant pumpkin in pounds. A graph of these values is a scatter plot that could be represented by an exponential function.

Select the option that makes the statement true. ƒ 1(x) | ƒ 2(x) increases more quickly as x increases. ƒ 1(x) | ƒ 2(x) approaches 0 more quickly as x decreases.

If a > 0 and b > 1, increasing the value of b makes the graph rise more quickly as x increases. For a > 0 and 0 < b < 1, increasing the value of b makes the graph fall more gradually as x increases. Increasing the absolute value of a stretches the graph vertically, and changing the sign of a reflects the graph across the x-axis.

Consider the function, y = 1.3 x. How will its graph compare with the graphs of ƒ 1(x) and ƒ 2(x)? Discuss end behavior and the y-intercept. All three graphs have the same y-intercept of 1. The graph of y = 1.3 x falls between

After students have used tables to explore the effects of changing the value of b in the function f(x) = b x, have students use calculators to graph functions with different values of b on the same grid.

Changing the Value of a in f(x) = ab with b > 1 x

Explain 1

Multiplying a growing exponential function (b > 1) by a constant a does not change the growth rate, but it does stretch or compress the graph vertically, and reflects the graph across the x-axis if a < 0.

A vertical stretch of a graph is a transformation that pulls the graph away from the x-axis. By multiplying the y-value of each (x, y) pair by a, where ⎜a⎟ > 1, the graph is stretched by a factor of ⎜a⎟.

QUESTIONING STRATEGIES

A vertical compression of a graph is a transformation that pushes the graph toward the x-axis. By multiplying the y-value of each (x, y) pair by a, where ⎜a⎟ < 1, the graph is compressed

⎜⎟

For two values of b that are both greater than 1, why is the graph of y = b x steeper for the larger value of b? The value of b determines by what factor the function grows for each unit increase in the value of x. A larger value of b means more growth per unit and a steeper graph.

Integrate Mathematical Practices

This lesson provides an opportunity to address Mathematical Practice MP.7, which calls for students to “look for and make use of structure.” Students will compare exponential functions. They will explore how changing the parameters of the functions affects the shapes of their graphs, including how quickly the graphs rise or fall, end behavior, and y-intercepts. They will identify patterns that will allow them to predict how increasing, decreasing, or changing the sign of a parameter will affect the graph of an exponential function.

Discussion What can you say about the common behavior of graphs of the form ƒ(x) = ab x with b > 1? What is different when a changes sign? All graphs of the form f(x) = ab x with b > 1 approach 0 as x approaches -∞ and have a y-intercept at (0, a). The sign of a determines the end behavior as x approaches ∞; for a > 0, f(x) increases toward infinity, and for a < 0, f(x) decreases toward negative infinity.

As a class, work together to determine what occurs when a constant h is introduced in the exponential function f(x) = b x – h. Have students select a value for b and three values for h, then write three functions in the form f(x) = b x – h using their chosen values. Create a table that shows the output of each function for several x-values. Graph all three functions on the same coordinate grid. Discuss how h affects the parent function f(x) = b x. Students should realize that positive values of h translate the graph to the right, while negative values of h translate the graph to the left.

How can the values of a and b tell you in which direction the graph of an exponential function goes as x increases, and in which quadrants the graph is located? When b > 1, the graph moves away from the x-axis as x increases. When 0 < b < 1, the graph approaches the x-axis as x increases. When a > 0, the graph is in quadrants 1 and 2 (above the x-axis). When a < 0, the graph is in quadrants 3 and 4 (below the x-axis).

How is the y-intercept of a function f(x) = ab x related to the value of a? Explain. Since the y-intercept of a function is its value when x = 0, and b 0 = 1 for any value of b, the y-intercept of f(x) = a b x is always equal to a.

4/19/14 11:30 AM

How is the effect of changing a when 0 < b < 1 similar to the effect of changing a when b > 1? In both cases, increasing the absolute value of a creates a vertical stretch of the graph and decreasing the absolute value of a creates a vertical compression of the graph. Changing the sign of a reflects the graph across the x-axis.

Have students graph, on the same grid, a parent exponential function and exponential functions in which the value of a or b has been changed or to which a constant has been added. Students can draw each graph in a different color and write the equation for each function in the same color as its graph. Then have them circle the value that was changed in each equation. Students may wish to keep this graph as a visual reference to use when working with transformations of other exponential functions.

Communicate Math To accurately describe the transformations of functions explored in this lesson, students must be careful to use precise language. Provide sentence starters to help English learners frame explanations of changes in the behavior of a function. For example: • If [b > 1 / b < 1], increasing the value of b causes the function to [approach infinity / approach zero] more [quickly / slowly] as x increases. • [Increasing / Decreasing] the absolute value of a causes a [vertical stretch / vertical compression / translation / reflection] of the graph.

results from adding a constant to an exponential function is not a translation of the graph, because the curves can appear to be closer to each other on one side of the grid than on the other side. To illustrate that the transformation represents a translation, have students determine the vertical distance between the transformed graph and the graph of its parent function for any x-value. They should find that the distance is the same for all values of x, verifying that both graphs are increasing or decreasing at the same rate.

increasing b makes the graph fall more gradually as x increases.

How does changing a, b, or k change the graph of an exponential function in the form f(x) = ab x + k? Increasing the absolute value of a stretches the graph vertically; decreasing the absolute value of a compresses the graph vertically. If b > 1, increasing the value of b makes the graph rise more quickly as x increases. If 0 < b < 1, increasing the value of b makes the graph approach the x-axis more slowly as x increases. Adding a constant k translates the graph of the parent function upward if k > 0, and translates the graph downward if k < 0.

27. Critical Thinking Describe how the graph of ƒ (x) = ab x changes for a given positive value of a as you increase the value of b when b > 1. Discuss the rise and fall of the graph and the y-intercept.

Have students create a graphic organizer like the one shown to explain each type of transformation studied in this lesson. Students may include either verbal explanations or graphs to show the effect of each change.

The y-intercept equals a for all values of b > 1 because ab 0 = a. As the value of b increases, the graph rises more quickly as x increases to the right of 0, and it falls more quickly as x decreases to the left of 0.

Lesson Performance Task

QUESTIONING STRATEGIES

A coffee shop serves two patrons cups of coffee. The initial temperature of the coffee is 170 °F. As the coffee sits in the 70 °F room, the temperature follows the pattern of a transformed exponential function. One patron leaves her coffee untouched, resulting in a slow cooling toward room temperature. The other patron is in a hurry and stirs her coffee, resulting in a faster cooling rate.

In the Lesson Performance Task, is the temperature of the coffee described by an increasing or decreasing exponential function? What can you conclude about the value of b? decreasing; b < 1

Both cups of coffee can be modeled with transformed exponential functions of the form T (t) = ab t + k.

What value does the temperature of the coffee approach as t approaches infinity? In the general exponential function T(t) = ab t + k with b < 1, what value does ab t approach as t approaches infinity? How can you use this information to find one of the parameters of the temperature functions? As t approaches infinity, the temperature of the coffee approaches room temperature, 70°F, and ab t approaches 0. Therefore, as t approaches infinity, the equation T(t) = ab t + k becomes 70 = 0 + k, so k = 70 for both functions.

Each minute, the unstirred coffee gets 10% closer to room temperature, and the stirred coffee gets 20% closer. Find the functions T s (t) and T u (t) for the stirred and unstirred cups of coffee, fill in the table of values, and graph the functions. Determine how long it takes each cup to drop below 130 °F (don’t try to solve the equations exactly, just use the table to answer to the nearest minute).

A 10% drop each minute for the unstirred coffee means b = (100% - 10%) = 90% = 0.9. For the stirred coffee, b = (100% - 20%) = 80% = 0.8.

Have them adjust the viewing window so that the maximum and minimum values of y represent the initial and final temperatures (170°F and 70°F), respectively. Then have them use the TRACE feature to determine how long it takes for the coffee temperature to drop below 71°F. Students may find that the stirred cup takes about 21 minutes and the unstirred cup takes about 44 minutes.

T u (t) = 100(0.9) + 70 for the unstirred coffee t

T s (t) = 100(0.8) + 70 for the stirred coffee t

The unstirred cup takes 5 minutes to drop below 130 °F, and the stirred cup takes 3 minutes to drop below 130 °F. Module 14

Lesson 5

EXTENSION ACTIVITY IN1_MNLESE389762_U6M14L5 702

Have students research Newton’s law of cooling and use it to explain why an exponential function may be used to model the cooling of a cup of coffee. Newton’s law of cooling states that the rate of heat loss of an object, or its temperature change per unit time, is proportional to the difference in temperature between the object and its surroundings. As the coffee cools, the temperature difference between the coffee and its surroundings decreases, so the temperature change per minute also decreases. In other words, the temperature decreases at a steadily decreasing rate, as described by an exponential function.

Learning Progressions In this lesson, students continue to build on their understanding of geometric sequences and exponential functions. They learn the Equality of Bases Property, which states that If b > 0 and b ≠ 1, then b x = b y if and only if x = y. They learn to solve equations involving variable exponents either by using the Equality of Bases Property or by graphing. They also begin to model real-world situations using exponential equations, which can then be solved by either method. Work with exponential functions will continue as students learn about exponential growth and decay models and exponential regression.

In the equation 4 x = 64, how can you evaluate x? Write 64 as a power of 4. 3 64 = 4 , so x = 3. Assuming that x is an integer in the equation b x = c, what must be true for this method to work? The value of c must be a power of b.

Solving Equations by Equating Exponents

Explain 1

EXPLAIN 1

Solving the previous exponential equation for x used the idea that if 2 x = 2 5, then x = 5. This will be a powerful tool for solving exponential equations if it can be generalized to if b x = b y then x = y. However, there are values for which this is clearly not true. For example, 0 7 = 0 3 but 7 ≠ 3. If the values of b are restricted, we get the following property.

Solving Equations by Equating Exponents

Equality of Bases Property Two powers with the same positive base other than 1 are equal if and only if the exponents are equal. Algebraically, if b > 0 and, b ≠ 1, then b x = b y if and only if x = y.

Equality of Bases Property. Have students give examples to show why the property does not apply when the base is 0, 1, or –1. For example: 05 = 0 8 = 0 4 but 5 ≠ 8; 1 20 = 1 99 = 1 but 20 ≠ 99; and (–1) 6 = (–1) = 1 but 4 ≠ 6.

How does this step compare to isolating a variable on one side of a linear equation? It is done for the same reason. By isolating the power, you have isolated the variable as well. Then you can compare the exponents in the final equivalent expression.

Suppose while solving an equation algebraically you are confronted with: 5 x = 15 5x = 5 Can you find x using the method in the examples above?

No, you cannot. It is not possible because 15 is not a whole number power of 5.

AVOID COMMON ERRORS Some students may misread the base b in an expression b x as a coefficient of x and try to divide both sides of the equation by b to isolate the variable. Remind them that when a number is raised to a power, it cannot be treated as a single factor. They must use the properties of equality to isolate b x, then use the Equality of Bases Property to solve for the variable.

After students exchange equations, each partner should first decide whether c can be expressed as a whole number power of b. If so, the student should rewrite c as a power of b and solve for x. If not, the student should use a graphing calculator to graph each side of the equation as a separate function and use the intersect feature to find the x-coordinate of the intersection point, which is the solution to the original equation.

Solving a Real-World Exponential Equation by Graphing

Why is it appropriate to round a prediction involving time to the nearest year? A prediction is usually just an estimate, so rounding is appropriate.

Some equations cannot be solved using the method in the previous example because it isn’t possible to write both sides of the equation as a whole number power of the same base. Instead, you can consider the expressions on either side of the equation as the rules for two different functions. You can then solve the original equation in one variable by graphing the two functions. The solution is the input value for the point where the two graphs intersect.

SUMMARIZE THE LESSON

Exponential equations can always be solved graphically.

How can you solve an equation where the variable is an exponent? First, use the properties of equality to isolate the number raised to a variable power. Then check whether the constant on the other side of the equation can be written as a power of the same base. If it can, use the Equality of Bases Property to solve. If not, graph each side of the equation as its own function and find the x-value of the point of intersection.

AVOID COMMON ERRORS Some students may be unsure how to raise a fraction to a power. Remind them that both the numerator and the denominator must be raised to the same power.

(When interest is compounded monthly, the bank pays interest every month instead nt of every year. The function representing compounded interest is S(t) = P(1 + __nr ) , where P is the principal, or initial deposit in the account, r is the interest rate, n is the number of times the interest is compounded per year, t is the year, and S(t) is the savings after t years.)

Switching won’t make much difference. 22. Lisa has a credit card that charges 3% interest on a monthly balance. She buys a $200 bike and plans to pay for it by making monthly payments of $100. How many months will it take her to pay it off? Assume the first payment she makes is charged no interest because she paid it before the first bill. Her first payment is $100. At that time she owes $100 plus interest or $103. The second month she pays $100 and the third month she pays the rest. It takes her three months to pay it off. You do not have to solve an exponential because 3% is not a very high interest.

When you graph a function ƒ(x) in a coordinate plane, the x-axis represents the independent variable and the y-axis represents the dependent variable. Therefore, the graph of ƒ(x) is the same as the graph of the equation y = ƒ(x). You will use this form when you use a calculator to graph functions.

Describing End Behavior of a Decay Function

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT IN1_MNLESE389762_U6M15L2 722

Math Background

The end behavior of a function f(x) is a description of what happens to a function f(x) as x increases or decreases without bound. The value of an exponential growth function f(x) = ab x, where b > 1 and a > 0, increases without bound as x increases without bound, and approaches 0 as x decreases without bound. The value of an exponential decay function f(x) = ab x, where 0 < b < 1 and a > 0, approaches 0 as x increases without bound, and increases without bound as x decreases without bound. Such end behavior can also be described using the notation f(x) → ∞ as x → ∞ and f(x) → 0 as x → ∞, where the symbol ∞ represents infinity.

19/04/14 10:54 AM

QUESTIONING STRATEGIES Before you graph it, how can you tell that the x function f(x) = 500(0.8) will decrease as x increases? A positive number is being multiplied x times by a number between 0 and 1, so it will get smaller as x increases.

Modeling Exponential Growth and Decay

722

Recall that a function of the form y = ab x represents exponential growth when a > 0 and b > 1. If b is replaced by t 1 + r and x is replaced by t, then the function is the exponential growth model y = a(1 + r) , where a is the initial amount, the base (1 + r) is the growth factor, r is the growth rate, and t is the time interval. The value of the model increases with time.

What does it mean for a function to approach 0 as x increases without bound? Is 0 a value of the function? The value of the function gets closer and closer to 0 as x increases, but it never reaches 0.

Critical Thinking

19/04/14 10:54 AM

To help students understand the difference between exponential growth and linear growth, point out that in exponential growth or decay, the amount added or subtracted in each time period is proportional to the amount already present. For exponential growth, this means that as the amount becomes greater, the amount of increase in each time period also becomes greater. Contrast this to linear growth, in which the amount of increase remains constant.

Modeling Exponential Decay

Explain 2

Recall that a function of the form y = ab x represents exponential decay when a > 0 and 0 < b < 1. If b is replaced t by 1 - r and x is replaced by t, then the function is the exponential decay model y = a(1 - r) , where a is the initial amount, the base (1 - r) is the decay factor, r is the decay rate, and t is the time interval.

What is the range for a function describing the exponential growth or decay of a population? For a growth function, the range consists of all numbers greater than or equal to the starting value of the population. For a decay function, the range includes all numbers between the starting value and 0.

Example 2

Write an exponential decay function for each situation. Graph each function and state its domain and range. What does the y-intercept represent in the context of the problem?

Connect Vocabulary Remind students that exponential growth refers to an increasing function and exponential decay refers to a decreasing function. While students are probably familiar with the word growth, they may be less familiar with decay. Explain that, in everyday use, it can mean rot, or loss of strength and health. Have students list key words that can indicate growth or decay in descriptions of real-world situations. Examples of key words for growth include increases, goes up, rises, gains. Examples of key words for decay include decreases, goes down, falls, loses value, declines, depreciates.

The initial value, when t = 0, is 16. The value when t = 1 is 12. Since 12 ÷ 16 = 0.75, the function that represents the value of Stock A after t t years is A(t) = 16(0.75) . A(t) is an exponential decay function.

Ask students to discuss with a partner how to write an exponential growth or decay model from a verbal description of a real-world situation. They should consider which key words tell whether the situation involves growth or decay; what the starting value a is; and how to use the growth or decay rate r in the equation.

26. Explain the Error A student was asked to find the value of a $2500 item after 4 years. The item was depreciating at a rate of 20% per year. What is wrong with the student’s work? 4 25000(0.2) $4 t t The exponential decay function is y = 2500(1 - 0.2) , or y = 2500(0.8) . The student forgot to subtract the rate of depreciation from 1 before solving. 27. Make a Conjecture The value of a certain car can be modeled by the function t y = 18000(0.76) , where t is time in years. Will the value of the function ever be 0?

The value of the function will never be 0 because the right side of the function is a product of positive numbers. Although the value can become extremely close to 0, it can never equal 0. 28. Communicate Mathematical Ideas Explain how a graph of an exponential function may resemble the graph of a linear function.

A graph of an exponential function may appear to be a linear function if only a small part of the graph is shown and the values in that part are changing slowly.

CONNECT VOCABULARY Some students may not be familiar with the terms archeologist, artifacts, or radiometric dating. Explain that an archeologist studies prehistoric people and cultures by analyzing items that remain for us to find, such as their bones, weapons, artifacts, and tools. Artifacts are objects that the people made, such as pottery. Radiometric dating, also called radioactive dating, is a method of determining the age of an object based on the rate of decay of an element in the object.

Archeologists have several methods of determining the age of recovered artifacts. One method is radioactive dating. All matter is made of atoms. Atoms, in turn, are made of protons, neutrons, and electrons. An “element” is defined as an atom with a given number of protons. Carbon, for example, has exactly 12 protons. Carbon atoms can, however, have different numbers of neutrons. These are known as “isotopes” of carbon. Carbon-12 has 12 neutrons, carbon-13 has 13 neutrons, and carbon-14 has 14 neutrons. All carbon-based life forms contain these different isotopes of carbon. Carbon-12 and carbon-13 account for over 99% of all the carbon in living things. Carbon-14, however, accounts for approximately 1 part per trillion or 0.0000000001% of the total carbon in living things. More importantly, carbon-14 is unstable and has a half-life of approximately 5700 years. This means that, within the span of 5700 years, one-half of any amount of carbon will “decay” into another atom. In other words, if you had 10 g of carbon-14 today, only 5 g would remain after 5700 years. But, as long as an organism is living, it keeps taking in and releasing carbon-14, so the level of it in the organism, as small as it is, remains constant. Once an organism dies, however, it no longer ingests carbon-14, so the level of carbon-14 in it drops due to radioactive decay. Because we know how much carbon-14 an organism had when it was alive, as well as how long it takes for that amount to become half of what it was, you can determine the age of the organism by comparing these two values.

QUESTIONING STRATEGIES What is the growth factor (the base raised to a power) in the exponential model? Explain. It is 1 - 0.5 = 0.5, because the amount of carbon-14 decreases by half during every time period.

Use the information presented to create a function that will model the amount of carbon-14 in a sample as a function of its age. Create the model C(n) here C is the amount of carbon-14 in parts per quadrillion (1 part per trillion is 1000 parts per quadrillion) and n is the age of the sample in half-lives. Graph the model.

Have students research how very large numbers such as million, billion, trillion, and quadrillion compare to each other. Then have students rewrite the model C(n) in different units and tell how the graph would change.

Students may find that since 1 trillion, or 10 12, is equal to 1000 billion, or 10 3 ∙ 10 9, 1 part per trillion is the same as 0.001 parts per billion. Therefore, the model could be C(n) = 0.001(0.5)n. The graph would differ only in that the scale of the vertical axis would be in parts per billion rather than parts per quadrillion.

Common Core Math Standards The student is expected to:

One of the reasons data is valuable is that it allows us to make predictions for values that fall outside of the data set. In order to do this, the data needs to be synthesized into a function. An exponential regression is a graphing calculator tool used to generate an exponential equation that fits data exhibiting exponential growth or decay. The statistical tools on a graphing calculator offer several possible methods for finding a regression model for a set of data. Use a graphing calculator to find the exponential regression equation that models the data provided.

The initial value of the function corresponds to f(x) when x = 0, and any number raised to the zero power is 1. f(x) = a(b) and f(0) = a(b) = a(1) = a x

Recall that a residual is the difference between the actual y-value in the data set and the predicted y-value. Residuals can be used to assess how well a model fits a data set. If a model fits the data well, then the following are true.

INTEGRATE TECHNOLOGY

• The numbers of positive and negative residuals are roughly equal. • The residuals are randomly distributed about the x-axis on a residual plot. • The absolute value of the residuals is small relative to the data values.

Students may incorrectly substitute values for a, b, and r into the basic exponential equation. Explain that the variable a is the coefficient while b is the base that is being taken to the x power. Thus, if a = 3 and x b = 5, the exponential equation should be y = 3(5) . Values given by the calculator should be rounded to the same number of significant digits as the input data. Point out that r is the correlation coefficient, which gives a measure of how well the equation fits the data. It is not a value to be substituted into the equation.

Math Background

A simple example of an exponential function is y = 2 x, in which values for y increase as follows: ƒ(1) = 2 1 = 2; ƒ(2)= 2 2 = 4; ƒ(x) = 2 3 = 8; f(4) = 2 4 = 16; and so on. This creates a rapidly increasing pattern. A classic real-world application of an exponential function is the doubling problem. Give a person a penny on day 1 and double the amount each day. How much will the person have 30 after one month? ($0.01)(2) is more than $10 million!

19/04/14 11:45 AM

How do you find the residual for each data value? First find the predicted y-values by substituting each x-value into the exponential regression model. To find the residuals, subtract each predicted y-value from the corresponding observed y-value.

Students may mistakenly compute residuals by subtracting y d from y m rather than y m from y d. This will not change the absolute value of the residuals, but it will change the sign of the residuals.

EXPLAIN 1

Look for Patterns What can you infer about the accuracy of the model as it moves further away from the initial value? Explain. The residuals get larger as x increases, indicating a growing disparity between the data

INTEGRATE MATHEMATICAL PRACTICES Focus on Reasoning MP.2 Students may think that the points on a residual plot should follow an exponential curve because they come from an exponential function. Explain that the purpose of subtracting the predicted y-values from the actual y-values is to find how much the data deviate from the prediction. You could say that the curve is subtracted out from the data. If the model fits the data well, the residuals will be relatively small and randomly distributed about the x-axis. They will not follow a sloped line or a curve.

Multiple Representations What does the residual plot reveal about the fit of the model? Does this agree with the correlation coefficient? In the residual plot, there are roughly equal numbers of positive and negative values, which

QUESTIONING STRATEGIES Why is it useful to plot the regression function on the same grid as the scatter plot? It allows you to see how closely the model fits the data. How do you use the graph of a regression function to predict when a variable will reach a given value? On the same grid where you graphed the regression function, graph a constant function equal to the given value. The point where the two graphs intersect shows the x-value at which the regression function reaches that value.

How do you model changes in population using an exponential function? Graph the data on a graphing calculator and perform exponential regression to generate an exponential function, then compute residuals to check whether the model is a good fit. If it is, you can use the exponential regression model to make predictions about the population.

The table shows the population of Arizona (in thousands) in each census from 1900–2000.

Elaborate 10. What does a pattern in the plot of the regression data indicate? A pattern indicates that the model is not a good one. The relationship between the

dependent and independent variables is probably not exponential. 11. Discussion While it is typically the best model for population growth, what are some factors that cause population growth to deviate from the exponential format? The model does not take into account factors that might cause surges or large drops

Have students list the steps for making a prediction based on population data. They should include using a calculator to fit a function to the data, graphing the function, checking whether it is a good fit for the data, and using the function to make predictions.

16. Critique Reasoning The absolute values of the residuals in Mark’s regression model are less than 20. Working on a different data set, Sandy obtained residuals in the hundreds. This led Mark to conclude his data is a better fit than Sandy’s. Explain why Mark is wrong to base his assessment of their regression models on the values of the residuals.

It is the size of the residual relative to that of the data that is important. Sandy’s data values may have been quite large relative to the data values Mark was using.

17. Make a Conjecture When Chris used exponential regression on Arizona population data, he obtained the following results: a = 186, b = 1.026, r = 0.813. When he reviewed the data in his lists, he found he had entered a number incorrectly. Is it more likely that his error was in entering the last population value too high or too low? Justify your reasoning.

too low; The growth rate is too small and the initial value is too large. Entering a lower value for the last population value would have caused the modeled curve to shift “down” at the end and thus “up” at the beginning.

How can you find the interest rate from the exponential regression equation y = ab x? Explain. Since this is an exponential growth model, we know that the base b for the exponent is equal to 1 + r, where r is the interest rate expressed as a decimal. So, to express the interest rate as a percent, find 100(b – 1).

TECHNOLOGY When students graph the data from the table, depending on the settings used, they may notice that the points appear to be nearly linear. If the window settings are changed so that the x-axis includes a greater range of values, it will become more evident that that the points follow an increasing curve. Graphing a horizontal line on the same grid for comparison will also make the curve more evident.

Perform an exponential regression on the data. Then estimate the amount of money the student placed in the account initially and the yearly interest rate.

Students will find that the graphs of y = 6000(1.0253) and y = 12,000 intersect at about (27.8, 12,000), so the amount in the student’s account will have doubled after 27.8 years.

For example, for a $1000 salary with a 10% raise each month, the increase in month 1 is 10% of $1000, but to find the increase in month 2, students need to take 10% of $1100, not 10% of the original $1000.

IN1_MNLESE389762_U6M15L4 750

In this lesson, students bring together their understanding of linear and exponential functions. They learn how to determine whether a given situation is best modeled by a linear or exponential function. A key concept is that if the dependent variable changes by equal differences over equal intervals a linear model is more appropriate, while if it changes by equal factors over equal intervals, an exponential model is more appropriate. Work with functions will continue when students learn about quadratic functions.

19/04/14 12:07 PM

QUESTIONING STRATEGIES In the proof for linear functions, why were b and –b added to both sides of the equation? What purpose did this step serve? The goal was to get each term of the equation, mx 1, mx 2, mx 3, and mx 4, in the form of mx + b. In that form, those quantities are equivalent to the functions f(x 1), f(x 2), f(x 4), and f(x 4), so they can be replaced by those functions in f(x) form.

How do you know that you should write a linear equation to describe a salary that increases by $100 a month and an exponential equation to describe a salary that increases by 10% a month? An increase of $100 a month is an equal change over equal intervals, so it is a linear increase. An increase of the same percent each month is a change by equal factors over equal intervals, so it is an exponential function.

Compare the two salary plans listed by using a graphing calculator. Will Job B ever have a higher monthly salary than Job A? If so, after how many months will this occur?

• Job A: $1000 for the first month with a $100 raise every month thereafter

• Job B: $1000 for the first month with a 1% raise every month thereafter Write the functions that represent the monthly salaries. Let t represent the number of elapsed months. Job B: S B(t) = 1000(1.01)

• Job A: $1000 for the first month with a $200 raise every month thereafter

the graphs for the linear and exponential function will eventually intersect. Students should recognize that an ever-increasing exponential function will eventually overtake a function that increases by a constant amount. Even with a small percent increase, sooner or later the total value of the exponential function will be sufficiently large to make the increase per unit time greater than the constant increase per unit time in the linear function. That said, there is no guarantee that the two quantities will be equal within a reasonable and practical amount of time.

19/04/14 12:07 PM

It will be helpful for visual learners to study a graph that shows two functions representing job salaries, one starting at a low value and increasing exponentially, and the other starting at a higher value and increasing linearly. They can see that the exponential graph starts off below the linear graph; thus, the salary it represents is less. They can also see that at some point the exponential graph crosses the linear graph and goes above it, thus indicating that the salary represented by the exponential graph eventually will exceed the salary represented by the linear graph.

QUESTIONING STRATEGIES

How do you decide whether to use a linear or exponential regression model for a data set? First calculate the difference in y-values over each equal interval and the ratio of y-values over each equal interval. If the differences are roughly equal, use a linear model. If the ratios are roughly equal, use an exponential model.

Determine whether each situation is better described by an increasing or decreasing function, and whether a linear or exponential regression should be used. Then find a regression equation for each situation by using a graphing calculator.

Change per Interval Factor

real-world examples of increase and decrease, review what the parameters of the equations mean in this context. In a linear equation of the form y = mx + b, the coefficient m is the rate of change, and the constant b is the initial value, or the value of y when x is 0. In an exponential equation of the form y = ab x, the coefficient a is the initial value, and the base b is the growth factor.

How can you recognize when to use a linear model or an exponential model? A linear model should be used when the amount of increase or decrease in each successive interval is a constant. An exponential model is appropriate when the increase or decrease per successive interval grows, or changes.

Should he choose a simple interest account that pays an interest rate of 5% of the principal (initial amount) each year or a compounded interest account that pays an interest rate of 1.5% of the total account value each month?

f(x) = a + bx

Since the exponential growth function eventually curves upward while a linear growth function continues in a straight line with a positive slope, the exponential growth function will eventually exceed the linear growth function.

She concluded that since the number of cells showed a constant change and the time did not, neither a linear function nor an exponential function modeled the number of cells over time well. Was she correct?

JoAnn was incorrect. Because the time intervals are not uniform, she cannot make a determination by just looking at the data. An exponential function is a good model as exponential regression gives an equation with r = 0.9999.

Lesson Performance Task

AVOID COMMON ERRORS Some students may use the growth factor 1.05 for City B because they incorrectly converted 0.5% to the decimal 0.05 instead of 0.005. Remind students that percent means per hundred and hundredths have two decimal places. Therefore, when converting a percent to a decimal, move the decimal point two places to the left.

Two major cities each have a population of 25,000 people. The population of City A increases by about 150 people per year. The population of City B increases by about 0.5% per year.

a. Find the population increase for each city for the first 5 years. Round to the nearest whole number, if necessary. Then compare the changes in the populations of each city per year. b. Will City B ever have a larger population than City A? If so, what year will this occur?

a. First, find the yearly population of each city for the first 5 years.

QUESTIONING STRATEGIES

Next, find the population increase for each city for the first 5 years.

Yearly Population

What type of function describes each city’s growth? Explain. The growth of City A is described by a linear function, because it increases by a constant amount per year. The growth of City B is described by an exponential function because it increases by a constant percent per year.

b. Let t represent the number of elapsed years. City A: P A(t) = 25, 000 + 150t

City B: P B(t) = 25, 000x + 1.005 t The estimated intersection point is (72, 35,794). City B will have a larger population after about 72 years.

Module 15

How do you use the initial population value in the equation for each function? In the linear function for City A, the initial population is the y-intercept. In the exponential function for City B, the initial population is the coefficient.

EXTENSION ACTIVITY IN1_MNLESE389762_U6M15L4 762

Have students research factors that affect the growth rate of any city. Then have students tell which factors may cause a decrease in population and which may cause an increase. Students should find that births, deaths, immigration, and emigration affect growth rate. Deaths and emigration cause a decrease in population, while births and immigration cause an increase in population. The growth rate is determined using this equation: growth rate = birth rate – death rate + immigration rate – emigration rate

11. Billy earns money by mowing lawns for the summer. He offers two payment plans. Plan 1: Pay $250 for the entire summer. Plan 2: Pay $1 the first week, $2 the second week, $4 the third week, and so on.

SCORING GUIDES Item 11 (6 points) a. 1 point for correct identification of geometric sequence 2 points for explanation

A. Do the payments for Plan 2 form a geometric sequence? Explain. B. If you were one of Billy’s customers, which plan would you choose? (Assume that the summer is 10 weeks long.) Explain your choice. A. Yes, it is a geometric sequence with r = 2.

b. 1 point for correctly choosing plan 1 2 points for explanation

B. Possible answer: Plan 1; under Plan 2, the cost for the 10 th week alone is $512, which is more than the cost for the entire summer under Plan 1.

Item 12 (6 points) a. 1 point for correct amount b. 1 point for correct answer 12. As a promotion, a clothing store draws the name of one of its customers each week. The prize is a coupon for the store. If the winner is not present at the drawing, he or she cannot claim the prize, and the amount of the coupon x increases for the following week’s drawing. The function f (x) = 20(1.2) gives the amount of the coupon in dollars after x weeks of the prize going unclaimed.

c. 1 point for correct amount d. 1 point for correct percent e. 2 points for answer and explanation

A. What is the amount of the coupon after 2 weeks of the prize going unclaimed? B. After how many weeks of the prize going unclaimed will the amount of the coupon be greater than $100?

C. What is the original amount of the coupon? D. Find the percent increase each week. E. Do you think it would be wise for the owner of the store to set a limit on the number of weeks a prize can go unclaimed? Why or why not? A. 28.8 B. 9 whole weeks C. 20 D. 20% E. Yes; If the prize is claimed then the total cost through several weeks grow linearly. When the prize is not claimed it grows exponentially. After several weeks the exponential curve is more expensive.
