Grab your graphing calculator and try the following questions:

 1. The graph at the right shows the line y = x.  If the line y = 5x were graphed on the same grid, would the new graph be more steep or less steep than the current graph? Choose: more steep less steep

 2. The graph at the right shows the parabola y = x2 .  If the parabola y = 0.4x2 were graphed on the same grid, would the new parabola be wider or narrower than the current parabola? Choose: wider narrower

 3. The graphs at the left are the graphs of a.)  y = | x | b.)  y = | 5x | c.) y = | 0.3x |. Which is the correct order for these functions? Choose: (1) a,  (2) b,  (3) c (1) c,  (2) a,  (3) b (1) c,  (2) b,  (3) a (1) b,  (2) a,  (3) c

 4. Which equation below could depict exponential decay? Choose: y = 3 x   y = 1.4 x y = 0.5 x
