Video: Algebra Applications: Exponential Functions, Segment 4: How Is Earthquake Magnitude Measured?

Description: An earthquake is an example of a seismic wave. A wave can be modeled with a trigonometric function. Using the TI-Nspire, students link the amplitude to an exponential function to analyze the dramatic increase in intensity resulting from minor changes to magnitude.

Grade Range: 6-12, college developmental math

Curriculum Standards: CCSS.Math.Content.HSF-LE.A.1, CCSS.Math.Content.HSF-LE.A.2, CCSS.Math.Content.HSF-LE.A.4
