Students are the zookeepers and an animal has escaped. Students must solve exponential equations using logs. With each answer they find they verify that an animal is safe in the zoo! There will be one answer they don't use, which will tell the zookeepers which animal has escaped!
There are four forms of this assignment so students can't spoil the answer. This activity works great if the answers are hung in the hallway.
