# Lesson Plan: Graphs of Exponential Functions Mathematics • 9th Grade

This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to sketch and identify the graphical transformations of exponential functions.

#### Objectives

Students will be able to

- sketch the graph of an exponential function,
- identify the domain and range of an exponential function using its graph,
- find where a given exponential graph intersects the axes,
- find a missing value in an exponential equation given a point it passes through.

#### Prerequisites

Students should already be familiar with

- the exponential function.

#### Exclusions

Students will not cover

- applications of the exponential function,
- the natural exponential function.
