This is a collaborative and challenging group activity to practice solving logarithmic equations. There are given six groups logarithmic equations of different types. Students will apply the properties of logarithms:
• One - To - One Property • Product Rule • Quotient Rule
Most of the equations need to be transformed from logarithmic to exponential form. There are included equations with common and natural logarithms. Extraneous solutions are possible.
Activity Directions: Each member of a group is asked to choose one of the equations from group A to solve it. Then members are instructed to search for one and only equation of each of the other groups of logarithmic equations which has the same solution as their own initially chosen equation of group A.
A proposal strategy for a group of 4 to handle this task: each partner solves one equation of each group and then members sort the equations into groups according their solutions. Students solve equations on a separate sheet of paper and then show solutions to the equations having the same root on the recording sheets provided.
Answer keys are included.
