The Exponential Function

This interactive resource, produced by the University of Leicester, is designed to enable students to explore the nature of the exponential function and to explore the derivative of the exponential function.

An introduction page sets out some basic information about exponential functions leading to a definition of the exponential function. There follows an interactive graphical page showing graphically the definition of the exponential function. The next interactive graph enables students to find an approximation for the value of e. There follows a summary of the main points.
