This document is designed to help the user recognize problems which can be solved by use of the exponential function, to show a wide variety of such problems, and to teach how to actually solve them. The material is divided into five individual units, numbered and labeled as follows: 84-Recognition of Problems Solved by Exponential Functions; 85-Exponential Growth and Decay; 86-Development of the Function y equals the quantity A times e to the power of C times x; 87-Numerical Approximations to y equals e to the x; and 88-How to Solve Problems Involving Exponential Functions. Each unit includes a series of exercises, an answer key, a model exam, and answers to the exam. (MP)
