Worksheet for chapter (linked to lesson plan)
Intro Power Point:launching_-fish-explosion(rather basic but higher content could be swapped in)
Opener: can review exponential and discuss alternate ways to solve this problem (working backwards with logarithms): The Set up and historic building diagram, the full video (first time you show it STOP IT AFTER 1 Minute!!!!!)
Function Machine: put number in and drops a new one out, shows results in a table. Might be a good simple warm up activity for first guessing an equation then talking about going the opposite direction and deriving the inverse.
Kahn Academy Explains Inverse Functions: not exactly riveting, but a clear overview of the concept – could be a good way to start the class the second day on the topic (stop at 5:30 minute mark before the graphing).
great set of worksheets for guiding students through the log laws.
Log war (based on the card game)
Introducing logs: Using a slight inquiry based technique where they figure out what makes a logarithm.
Turning a sphere inside out: an image attempting to get at the idea of inverse
