This is a great activity to bridge the gap between the two methods of solving exponential equations. If students already know one method this would be a great introduction to learning the other method. Additionally, it could be used as a recap of both methods to solidify student understanding and develop their procedural fluency in solving exponential equations.
Students sort 16 equations into two categories: Equations that can be solved without logarithms (by rewriting with a common base) and equations that can be solved with logarithms. Then they create a mini poster showing how to solve each type of problem
