Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this lesson, students will be able to:

  • define 'logarithm'
  • identify logarithm notation
  • solve logarithms using specific steps

Length

45 minutes to 1 hour

Curriculum Standards

  • CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.HSA.SSE.A.1

Interpret expressions that represent a quantity in terms of its context.

  • CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.HSA.SSE.A.1.A

Interpret parts of an expression, such as terms, factors, and coefficients.

  • CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.HSA.SSE.A.1.B

Interpret complicated expressions by viewing one or more of their parts as a single entity. For example, interpret P(1+r)n as the product of P and a factor not depending on P.

  • CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.HSA.SSE.A.2

Use the structure of an expression to identify ways to rewrite it. For example, see x4 - y4 as (x2)2 - (y2)2, thus recognizing it as a difference of squares that can be factored as (x2 - y2)(x2 + y2).

Materials
