    An exponential function is very similar to a geometric series, but you can plug in non-integer inputs into an exponential function (whereas you cannot with a geometric series)

    Example of an exponential function: f(x) = 2^x Example of a geometric sequence: a[n] = 2^n In the first, you can plug in ANY real number. In the second, you can only plug in positive integers.

    So the first is continuous, and the second is discrete.

    A Geometric function has variable number of terms, based on the argument. It also has a discrete graph. It may follow an exponential curve. An Exponential function is a function of a constant number of exponential terms. It is a continuous curve; the exponents are from the set of real numbers
