Students solve compound interest problems in this activity. You can scan for correct answers with the QR codes on each strip. If an answer is correct the strip becomes a link on the student's chain! Chain activities have motivated my hardest to motivate students because they can see how much work they are doing.
This is a fun self-checking activity in which students will simplify 8 exponential expressions using a mixture of exponent rules. Exponent rules included: positive and negative bases with positive exponents, multiplying and dividing powers, power of a power, power of a fraction, and power of a product. It is great for independent practice following instruction or as a quick review to brush up on skills. CCSS 8.EE N-RN
In this investigation, students will convert the logarithmic function into an exponential function and then fill in the table "backwards". This method sure makes graphing logarithmic functions more understandable. Students will then transform the parent function, identify x-intercepts, y-intercepts, if they exist, and asymptotes.

This activity is designed for Algebra and Precalculus. The topic is solving exponential equations before logarithms. Students solve the equations by finding equal bases and equating the exponents. 48 Task Cards, Example Sheet with four examples for students to follow, quiz, and much more.............
In this riddle worksheet, students will practice solving logarithmic and natural log equations. Some problems have logs on both sides of the equation; others require that the students convert between log and exponential form.The student directions on the worksheet state: Solve each of the problems below.
4 important things to add to an Algebra 2 bulletin board. Yes, even big kids like them! This is a snapshot of one part of the word wall in my high school Math classroom. This part is for Algebra 2. I'll have to take photos of the Geometry and Algebra sections too.
