The Algebra - the Complete Course series covers all Algebra core curriculum topics from a basic overview to the more complex algebraic functions. Dr. Monica Neagoy, consultant to the Annenberg Foundation & Public Broadcasting Service, uses concrete examples and practical applications to show how a mastery of fundamental algebraic concepts is the key to success in today's technologically advanced world. In this lesson you will discover multiple applications of exponential functions. You will view two exponential explorations: "The Mythical Story of Chess" and "A Paper folding Activity". Students will learn to answer questions by functional exploration and to confirm answers by symbolic manipulation.
