Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, we are introduced to exponential functions and learn about their main constraints and characteristics, such as domain, range, and x and y intercepts. We also learn about graph transformations, including shifts in the x and y directions and reflection about the x and y-axis, that can be applied to exponential functions. By the end of the lesson, we have a better understanding of how to identify and manipulate exponential functions, and how to graph them accordingly.

Lesson Description:

Overview of exponential graphs

I show how to solve math problems online during live instruction in class. This is my way of providing free tutoring for the students in my class and for students anywhere in the world. Every video is a short clip that shows exactly how to solve math problems step by step. The problems are done in real time and in front of a regular classroom. These videos are intended to help you learn how to solve math problems, review how to solve a math problems, study for a test, or finish your homework. I post all of my videos on YouTube, but if you are looking for other ways to interact with me and my videos you can follow me on the following pages through My Blog, Twitter, or Facebook.

Questions answered by this video:
  • Where do all exponential functions intersect on the y-axis?
  • Describe the properties of an exponential function as regards to its domain,range,x-intercept,y-intercept.
  • What is the difference in the graphs of f(x)=-a^x and f(x)=a^(-x)?
