♥ What is the MAGIC NUMBER? ♥

This product is a good review of "evaluating LOGARITHMIC functions by using the corresponding Exponential Form" at a given "numerical" input where the base is a rational number (integer or a rational number in one case). The answer is a rational number (including fractions) as students are expected to know these logarithms without the need to use a calculator or even change the base. There are 16 logarithmic provided.
When completing the 16 questions, students will check for their answers on the answer sheet. Students are asked to
match the number of the question with the letter of the answer. Then each student will map his/her findings to a grid (an example is provided for you). If a student chooses the correct answers, the sum of the numbers in the grid will be the same horizontally, vertically, and diagonally. The four corner boxes and the four center boxes will total the same amount, as well. If the students find that particular "same" sum, then they have the MAGIC NUMBER.

If the student gets the same number in all directions as well as the boxes, then the student answered the questions correctly. Otherwise, the student would need to check his/her work.

There are 2 options to use this product.
→ → Option 1: Individual Practice
→ → Option 2: Groups or Stations

In Option 1: Individiual Practice students could work on this activity alone in the classroom, at home, or with a sub. In this case, teacher will choose the form labeled Individual Practice.

In Option 2: Groups/Sessions students will be divided into groups of 4 where each member of the group will be assigned a duty as described in the activity. Each student will select 4 questions to work with from the 16 provided. When completed students will map their answers to the grid and check to see their Magic Number.

Additionally, this activity could be used in groups of 2 or as Pair-Share. In this case, each student will get 8 questions to work with instead of 4.

This is a great way to review before a quiz or a test. This activity could even be assigned as a homework, recap of the lesson, review, individual practice, cooperative learning, or even while you're out. It is self monitoring. It is a good practice over this particular concept.

Research has shown that using self-assessment with students can positively effect self-efficacy and intrinsic motivation levels in students (Rolheiser and Ross).

This activity includes a STEP-BY-STEP ANSWER KEY.
