## Reflection: Writing Across the Disciplines Exponential and Logarithmic Equations - Section 1: Warm Up and Homework Review

It is always a pleasure to receive really thoughtful work from students.  Here are two samples, 1 and 2, from today’s warm up that were obviously well thought out.  Both students rewrote the problems as exponentials thus showing a solid understanding of the structure of logarithms.  From there, their explanations diverged a bit.  Both, while not entirely correct, were explained thoroughly.  I have to say, I am more please to receive work that isn’t perfect but well thought out than work that is perfect with little evidence of thinking.
