Video Transcript: Algebra Nspirations: Exponents and Exponential Functions

This is the transcript for the video of same title. Video contents: Almost everyone has an intuitive understanding that exponential growth means rapid growth. Written and hosted by internationally acclaimed math educator Dr. Monica Neagoy, this video builds on students' intuitive notions, explores exponential notation, and analyzes properties of exponential function graphs, with the help of TI-Nspire features such as sliders and graph transformations. Using exponential functions to model finance applications and a Newton??s law of cooling problem further help students build a solid foundation for these fundamental algebraic concepts. Concepts explored: functions, exponents, exponential functions

Video Transcript: Algebra Applications: Logarithmic Functions, Segment 2: Hearing Loss

This is the transcript for the video of same title. Video contents: We live in a noisy world. In fact, prolonged exposure to noise can cause hearing loss. Students analyze the noise level at a rock concert and determine the ideal distance where the noise level is out of the harmful range. Using the TI-Nspire's Geometry tools, student create a mathematical simulation of the decibel level as a function of distance.

Video Transcript: Algebra Applications: Logarithmic Functions

This is the transcript for the video of same title. Video contents: In this episode of Algebra Applications, students explore various scenarios that can be explained through the use of logarithmic functions. Such disparate phenomena as hearing loss and tsunamis can be explained through logarithmic models.

Video Transcript: Algebra Applications: Exponential Functions, Segment 4: How Is Earthquake Magnitude Measured?

This is the transcript for the video of same title. Video contents: An earthquake is an example of a seismic wave. A wave can be modeled with a trigonometric function. Using the TI-Nspire, students link the amplitude to an exponential function to analyze the dramatic increase in intensity resulting from minor changes to magnitude.

Video Transcript: Algebra Applications: Exponential Functions, Segment 3: What Is the Difference between Earthquake Intensity and Magnitude?

This is the transcript for the video of same title. Video contents: An exponential model describes the intensity of an earthquake, while a logarithmic model describes the magnitude of an earthquake. In the process students learn about the inverse of an exponential function.

Video Transcript: Algebra Applications: Exponential Functions

This is the transcript for the video of same title. Video contents: In this episode of Algebra Applications, students explore earthquakes using exponential models. In particular, students analyze the earthquake that struck the Sichuan Province in China in 2008, months before the Beijing Olympics. This dramatic, real-world example allows students to apply their understanding of exponential functions and their inverses, along with data analysis and periodic function analysis.
