### Standard Alignments:

(C) Write exponential functions in the form f(x) = abx (where b is a rational number) to describe problems arising from mathematical and real-world situations, including growth and decay

A2.5.D(D) Solve exponential equations of the form y = abx where a is a nonzero real number and b is greater than zero and not equal to one and single logarithmic equations having real solutions

PCAL.5.I(I) Generate and solve exponential equations in mathematical and real-world problems

This creating equations lesson teaches students how to solve exponential equations in one variable. The lesson includes research-based strategies and strategic questions that prepare students for assessments. In this lesson, students will create and solve exponential equations to solve problems involving exponential growth or decay.
