Calculus AB/BC - Exponential Models with Differential Equations

Curated and Reviewed by Lesson Planet

Exponential models come with a shortcut. Pupils watch an example of how to determine if a differential equation is an exponential model. Learners realize the solution is in the same formula, allowing for a quick way to determine the solution. Scholars use their calculators to find the specific solutions to real-world problems as they practice their skills.
