Unit 6 – Exponents, Exponents, Exponents and More Exponents

This unit begins with a fundamental treament of exponent rules and the development of negative and zero exponents.  We then develop the concepts of exponential growth and decay from a fraction perspective.  Finally, percent work allows us to develop growth models based on constant percent rates of change.  Geoemtric sequences are tied to exponential growth in the last lesson.
