Reflection: Intrinsic Motivation Review exponential and logarithmic functions - Section 1: Scavenger Hunt Review


This activity gets every student working. During the activity you can hear and see students talking about doing the problems. Students are critiquing each others reasoning. Students are also helping each other.  

The students like this activity because it has them up moving around the room and they know when a mistake is made (they will get into a loop before finishing all the problems). By having the students movements listed at the top of the answer sheet I am quickly able to tell the student where they made a mistake so they can fix the problem. 

I do have a few students who need more direction these students have not been working in class or coming in for tutoring. I work some with them but I try to make them be self sufficient in their review.  Overall this is a very good review activity.
