Lesson Description:

Be familiar with and recognize the algebraic form for an exponential model from two points, including the corresponding parameters and if those parameters have any meaning in the context of the functional relationship (e.g. does a parameter control the initial value, rate of change (shape), decreasing or increasing (flip), max/min, limiting values, etc.).
