Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, the instructor goes over different model functions such as linear, quadratic, exponential, logistic, and more. He demonstrates how to identify these models by graphing them and using linear transformations. Through playing with the graphing software, students can see how each parameter of the functions affects the shape of the curve. By understanding the shapes of these model functions, students will have a foundation for future math courses.

Lesson Description:

Given a Cartesian plot be able to identify whether it is linear, quadratic, exponential, logistic, or other.

    This lesson uses the same data from the previous lesson and tries to model it using a quadratic, exponential, and logistic curve and using function transformations to fit the data. The concept of using function transformations of basic functions is explained.
