This Jeopardy-esque game has all students working to solve problems related to solving exponential equations, solving logarithmic equations, inverses, and compositions of functions.
I used this in my (HN) Math III class (class before HN Pre-Calculus). I included the section on inverses and composition of functions (and composition of inverses) so that my students would learn the next day why we "take the log of both sides," or why when we exponentiate we are just left with what was in the exponent.
Students are broken up into groups of 2-4 players. Each group gets a mini white board and dry-erase marker.
Each group takes turns choosing a category and a point value. They have 1.5 minutes to answer their question and put their work and answer on the mini white board. If correct, group gets the points and the whiteboard is shown to the class to see how it was solved. Next team chooses and the game continues.
If the group is incorrect the question goes to the next team. They have 10 seconds to answer the same question (this means students should be working on the problems no matter whose turn it is, in case they get the follow-up!). Play continues in the order following the team who missed the question (e.g. if team 2 got the question correct that team 1 missed, then the next turn still goes to team 2, as they were next in line to play, or if team 3 got the question correct that team 1 AND team 2 missed, then the next turn goes to team 2, as they followed after team 1).
Highest score wins!
