Day 126 & 127: Equations, Circuit, and Test
First we did a few True False questions to warm-up from the previous lesson. When students got to #4, they asked me did I intend for there to be parentheses on the right side. I love it when students find my typos - because it means they are thinking about the math!
Next we solved a few equations so that we could pull together all we know about properties, the relationships between logs and exponentials, and our solving skills.
Then as a final review for the test, we completed a circuit on expanding and condensing logs. I should have hung closer to students with a notepad in hand to take down their conversations. One definite joy in my work is listening to students explain math to their peers. Circuits provide that opportunity and are self-checking!
I traded students' work on circuits for a test ... a very short straightforward test on properties.
