The topics included along with examples are the following:
1. Solving Exponential Equations
a. Using common bases
b. Using logarithms on each side
2. Solving Logarithmic Equations
a. Using exponents
b. Using the properties of logarithms
This graphic organizer is designed to be used as a foldable in an interactive notebook. If not using an interactive notebook, it can easily be stored in a binder. It can be used as a review guide before a test or it could also be used instead of notes; students actually prefer this type of note taking format.
I hope this organizer is helpful to you and your students. I would love to hear back from you and see how it helped you.

•CCSS. HSF.LE.A.1 Distinguish between situations that can be modeled with linear functions and with exponential functions.
•CCSS.HSF.LE.A.4 For exponential models, express as a logarithm the solution to abct = d where a, c, and dare numbers and the base b is 2, 10, or e; evaluate the logarithm using technology.
•CCSS.HSF.LE.B.5 Interpret the parameters in a linear or exponential function in terms of a context.
