How to Use Exponential Function Activity with Microsoft Word

 Exponential Function Activity: It’s first and possibly most famous exponential function activity. I’ll give a short summary of it here to make it easier for you to understand. This activity has been used by the United States government to help identify areas in need of development or improvement. It is an economic indicator that gives a current value over time of the exponential growth rate of some factor.

Here is an example of a high value exponential function activity: If a material is manufactured at a factory that produces 250 units per year, then after a period of years, the cumulative output will be equal to the annual total produced in a year of production multiplied by the number of units manufactured. This can also be written as: The total cost of producing this item will be equal to the sum of the total dollars’ value invested during its production period. The exponential growth of the investment, or C.O.U. is a function of time and the type of material being used. In this lesson we will explore different types of such an activity and their usefulness in economic development.

One example of an exponential function activity is soil erosion. Here a line is drawn through the erosion zone of a layer of peat moss. As the rate of erosion progresses, the slope of the line approaches zero. We can plot the cumulative average of the rate of this zero slope for different values of tess ratio. This curve could also be plotted for other exponential functions.

Here is a second example of an exponential functions activity. This time we will use Google Maps to navigate our way. In the map, left click on the “advanced search” drop down menu and choose ” Map”, then “Street view”. Choose “roads” and “turn-by-turn”. There are two ways to use this Google map activity lesson.

In the first activity file we will need a Google map, a GParser workbook to draw the lines on the map and a GParser storyboard to create the storyboard. Open the G Peyton storyboard and create a new project. Then select the Project menu option and select “Map” and then “GParser”. The “GParser” dropdown menu contains a list of the functions available to you, from simple text output to 3D reconstruction. Select all of the available functions and add them to your project.

In the second activity file, we will create a simple word document from a series of GPS location submitted by a real person. The Google Maps web service will automatically convert a Google latitude and longitude into a meaningful GP vector representation. Once the document is saved to a convenient document format like PDF, the Google interface will prompt you to submit it to the service. The “Add Location” dialog box will allow you to enter the GPS coordinates of each entry and then you will click ” Submit” to save the document.

Once you have all the required GPS locations entered into the “Add Location” dialog box, you will be prompted to choose a name for the activity and a title for the activity report that you will generate. This report will contain all the keyword frequency maps for every single keyword entered in the “Add Location” dialog box and it will also contain a summary of the mapping weights, a dictionary of the keyword’s meaning, and a plot of the keyword’s probability. To make the whole thing more interesting you can also give each entry a color that indicates the occurrence of that word in the full phrase as well as the occurrence of other words related to the word.

For this activity you should create a number of activities in Goggle Map Editor. Add new activity files and assign keywords for every activity. Save the map as an Goggle Object and then open the same in Microsoft Word. You should be able to add, edit and customize the map in WYSIWYG editor. You may need to look up the Microsoft Office program instructions to find how to do that.
