The learning progression will be based upon Exponential Decay Functions where the students will be able to understand the properties and used it to solve real-life problems. At this point, the students have prior knowledge of solving Exponential Growth Functions and will be able to build upon that knowledge and use it to understand how Exponential Decay Functions work. The CCSS.Math standards that are align with the learning progression are:
- Math.HSF-LE.A.1: Construct and compare linear, quadratic, and exponential models and solve problems. Distinguish between situations that can be modeled with linear functions and with exponential functions.
- Math.HSF-LE.A.2: Construct linear and exponential functions, including arithmetic and geometric sequences, given a graph, a description of a relationship, or two input-output pairs.
3. Math.HSF-LE.B.2: Interpret the parameters in a linear or exponential function in terms of a context.
