Exponential explorer

I wanted to get a better intuition for exponential growth. So I made this exponential explorer.

It lets me directly manipulate the starting amount, growth rate and number of periods of a graphed exponential.

I can create multiple graphs and overlay them or compare them side by side to see the relative effects of the different factors.

I can create a set of graphs and share a link to illustrate a property of exponentials. For example: in this exponential, nothing happens for half the periods, then it goes off like a rocketship.

Try it out.
