WOODLAND HILLS SECONDARY
LESSON PLANS
Length of Lesson: 20 days
STAGE I – DESIRED RESULTS
Lesson Topic (Modules, if applicable):
Big Ideas:
Understanding Goals (Concepts):
Exponential and Logarithmic Functions
Families of functions exhibit properties and
behaviors that can be recognized across
representations. Functions can be transformed,
combined, and composed to create new functions
in mathematical and real world situations.
Exponential processes, properties and
representations
M11.A.1.1 Represent and/or use numbers in
equivalent forms (e.g., integers, fractions, decimals,
percents, square roots, exponents, and scientific
notation).
M.11.A.2.2 Use exponents, roots and/or absolute
value to solve problems
M.11.D.1.1 Analyze and/or use patterns or
relations.
M.11.D.2.2 Simplify expressions involving
polynomials.
M.11.D.4.1 Interpret and/or use linear, quadratic
and/or exponential functions and their equations,
graphs or tables.
Student Objectives (Competencies/Outcomes):
Students will be able to:
Represent exponential and logarithmic functions in
multiple ways, including tables, graphs, equations,
and contextual situations, and make connections
among representations; relate the growth/decay
rate of the associated exponential equation to each
representation.
Students will understand:
1) Evaluate and graph exponential
expressions.
2) Evaluate and graph logarithmic
expressions.
3) Expand and condense logarithmic
expressions using properties of logs.
4) Evaluate logarithmic expressions using
change of base formula.
5) Solve logarithmic equations.
6) Solve exponential equations.
Essential Questions:
Vocabulary:
How do you explain the benefits of multiple
methods of representing polynomial functions
(tables, graphs, equations, and contextual
situations)?
*Exponential functions, natural base e, natural
exponential function, continuous compounding
*Logarithmic functions, natural logarithmic
function
*Inverse properties
*Exponential growth, exponential decay, Gaussian,
logistics growth, logarithmic models
STAGE II – ASSESSMENT EVIDENCE
Formative Assessments:
Students will demonstrate adequate understanding via a chapter test.
Pre-assessments, open-ended questions, Think-Pair-Share
