First, students will learn how to sketch exponential functions with base \(e,\) with and without transformations. Then students will learn how to solve word problems involving exponential growth and decay. Specifically, they'll use \(Q(t) = Q_0e^{kt}\) or \(Q_0e^{-kt},\) to solve such word problems. Here, \(Q\) is some quantity, \(t\) is time, and \(k\) is the growth or decay constant.
