Linear, Quadratic, Cubic, and Exponential Functions

In this lesson, we'll take a step back and examine the basic characteristics of linear, quadratic, cubic, and exponential functions--as far as their equations go, but also in what shapes they take on the coordinate plane. By doing this, we'll how they're all similar, and how they're all different, and we'll gain some Perspective.
