F-LE.3

Overall Expectation Description:

F-LE.3 – High School Functions – Linear, Quadratic, & Exponential Models

Construct and compare linear, quadratic, and exponential models and solve problems.

Observe using graphs and tables that a quantity increasing exponentially eventually exceeds a quantity increasing linearly, quadratically, or (more generally) as a polynomial function.
