Assess students' ability to
• evaluate and interpret exponential functions at non-integer inputs (N-RN.A.1, F-LE.A.2$^\star$);
• construct exponential functions given a description or data from a table (F-LE.A.2$^\star$);
• manipulate exponential expressions (A-SSE.B.3$^\star$);
• use the formula for the sum of a finite geometric series to solve a problem (A-SSE.B.4$^\star$);
• create and analyze simple exponential functions arising from real-word data (F-LE.B.5$^\star$).
