Practice solving exponential equations with a Teacher Appreciation Twist. Humor Check: If the thought of telling a class, “In honor of Teacher Appreciation Week, you all will be sending me thank you cards,” doesn’t make you smirk, you won’t like this product. (Don’t judge. It was just a thought.)
Practice solving exponential equations WITHOUT the use of logarithms. Find 26 exponential equations that can be solved easily with the rules of exponents (Rules: Product, Quotient, Power to a Power, Zero power, Negative Exponents). Easily differentiate by giving struggling students a scaffolded version of the same worksheet. Practice is designed for middle/upper level Algebra 1 students.
