Expanding and Condensing Logs Practice

15 May 2016

One of my standard “tools” to get students to practice a kind of boring skill is to get out the mini-whiteboards and let them write with markers.  For some reason, students think whiteboards are super exciting.

Every year, I have my students practice expanding and condensing logarithmic expressions LOTS before we actually start solving equations.  I find that lots of practice makes the equations a little less painful.  I’ve used this powerpoint as practice every year.  It includes both expanding and condensing expressions.  If whiteboards aren’t enough to motivate your kids, sometimes setting a timer with an arbitrary amount of time helps too :)

  1. I also use "whiteboards" to have my students practice skills, and my students love it! A budget friendly tip: I took pieces of cardstock that my school provided and slipped them into sheet protectors. Voila! DIY "whiteboards"! (You can make them any color:D) The only downside is that the marker tends not to erase easily if it's not erased on the same day, and they do wear out after a while (although I've had mine for about two years and I'll probably replace them after the end of the school year), but you only have to replace the sheet protectors, not the cardstock inside. :)
