Strand: FUNCTIONS - Linear, Quadratic, and Exponential Models (F.LE)

Construct and compare linear, quadratic, and exponential models and solve problems (Standards F.LE.34). Interpret expressions for functions in terms of the situation it models. Introduce f(x) = ex as a model for continuous growth (Standard F.LE.5).

Standard F.LE.4

For exponential models, express as a logarithm the solution to abct = d where a, c, and d are numbers and the base b is 2, 10, or e; evaluate the logarithm using technology. Include the relationship between properties of logarithms and properties of exponents, such as the connection between the properties of exponents and the basic logarithm property that log xy = log x + log y.
