The last several lessons have thrown a lot of conceptual-level exponential properties and functions at the students. This lesson, however, will strive to give the students a more focused opportunity to review the mathematical properties and strategies that we have covered in the unit so far. The day also concludes with a short checkpoint quiz, which assesses student growth and current areas of weakness.

This lesson serves as a “Battleship” review of real number exponents (both irrational and rational) as well as solving exponential equations. Students engage in battle while trying to sink a partner’s fleet of answers!

Although the class thus far has been full of collaboration and competitiveness, it is important to assess student progress and growth. For this reason, I end the class period with a very brief quiz. It verifies to me that we are ready to move deeper into our study of exponentials!
