Practice problems for solving exponential equations.. want to add these kinds of problems to the curriculum! Love this way to have students check their own work.. a lot of work up front, but worth it in the end!
This teacher has a lot of great ideas for Algebra 1 and Algebra 2! Ex: Parabola Match - use this game to help students match equations, vertices, axis of symmetry, and graphs (did this during student teaching and it was fantastic!)
3 act task- how many points does Mario earn for his jump (after seeing points earned from similar jumps). The answer turns out to be an exponential relationship instead of linear so it's a good introduction into how all functions aren't linear.
Polynomial Factoring using synthetic division scavenger hunt. Students start at one "answer", get the first problem they need to solve, and move on until they complete their circuit. I did this with my classes today and the students had a blast!
