## Reflection: Checks for Understanding Solving Analogous Equations - Section 1: Launch and Explore

Here you can see how one of my students mixed up one of the log properties (log(x^2) = 2logx) from yesterday. They incorrectly thought that log(x^2) is the same thing as (log x)^2. This was a good formative assessment for students and gave me great feedback. I never caught this the day before, but today's lesson gave me an opportunity to see some of their understanding of this topic.
