# Linear, Quadratic, and Exponential Models

CCR.Math.Content.HSF-LE.A.1
Distinguish between situations that can be modeled with linear functions and with exponential functions.
CCR.Math.Content.HSF-LE.A.1a
Prove that linear functions grow by equal differences over equal intervals, and that exponential functions grow by equal factors over equal intervals.
CCR.Math.Content.HSF-LE.A.1b
Recognize situations in which one quantity changes at a constant rate per unit interval relative to another.
CCR.Math.Content.HSF-LE.A.1c
Recognize situations in which a quantity grows or decays by a constant percent rate per unit interval relative to another.
CCR.Math.Content.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 (include reading these from a table).
CCR.Math.Content.HSF-LE.A.3
Observe using graphs and tables that a quantity increasing exponentially eventually exceeds a quantity increasing linearly, quadratically, or (more generally) as a polynomial function.
CCR.Math.Content.HSF-LE.A.4
For exponential models, express as a logarithm the solution to abct = d where a, c, and d are numbers and the base b is 2, 10, or e; evaluate the logarithm using technology.
CCR.Math.Content.HSF-LE.B.5
Interpret the parameters in a linear or exponential function in terms of a context.
