Big Idea:This multi-faceted lesson creatively activates the students' prior knowledge of exponents in a fun and engaging way - it also includes a âfar-outâ example that leaves them with a hunger to learn âexponentiallyâ more!
Big Idea:This building-block lesson includes a touch of technology, collaboration, and critical thinking as the students further familiarize themselves with the rules of exponents â but more importantly, extend these rules to irrational exponents
Big Idea:This lesson will provide students with the opportunity to investigate a conceptual understanding of exponential functions. Students will begin with a mathematical model and then extend their knowledge to providing "mathematical" financial advice based off
Big Idea:This lesson serves as a âBattleshipâ review of real number exponents (both irrational and rational) as well as solving exponential equations. Students engage in battle while trying to sink a partnerâs fleet of answers!
Big Idea:This lesson builds nicely on the studentsâ knowledge of inverse functions and introduces them to the world of logarithms. Rather than trying to memorize mathematical notation, the students are guided through an in-depth study under the umbrella of exponen
Big Idea:This lesson builds on the âconcept levelâ understanding that the students have obtained on âeâ and extends that knowledge to skills practice and the natural logarithm function. It also focuses on mathematics specific readings strategies.
