Lesson Topic: Exponential Equations Length of lesson: 90 minutes

Grade level: Math II 10th Grade

Stage 1 Desired Results Content Standard(s): MA2A1. Students will explore exponential functions. d. Solve simple exponential equations and inequalities analytically, graphically, and by using appropriate technology. Understanding (s)/goals Students will understand: The students will understand the key concepts of solving exponential equations and inequalities in order to understand graphs. The students will understand how to solve exponential functions when using geometric sequencing. The students will understand key vocabulary terms related specifically to the lesson of solving equations. Essential Question(s): How do I solve exponential equations and inequalities?

Student objectives (outcomes): Students will be able to: The students will be able to solve exponential equations with the same bases and without the same bases. The students will be able to explain and interpret new vocabulary terms and how to solve exponential equations. Stage 2 Assessment Evidence Performance Task(s): Other Evidence: (application, interpretation, (application, interpretation, perspective, and self-knowledge) perspective, and self-knowledge) The students will complete an The students will complete a activating strategy by writing 5 equivalent expression for worksheet on solving exponents on a sheet of paper. exponential equations. The students will use a Think, Pair, Share group strategy to work 4 problems during the lesson. The students will complete a Ticket out the Door, by writing the steps for solving exponential equations. Stage 3 Learning Plan Learning Activities:

(explanation) The teacher will go over the previous and new vocabulary with the students; bases, exponents, exponential equations and exponential inequality. (explanation) The teacher will go over the activating strategy and describe how numbers can be rewritten in exponential form. (explanation) The teacher will start notes for solving exponential equations, using a the Steps for Solving Exponential Equations guided notes. The teacher will discuss when bases are the same, not the same, the steps and order in which the equation must be solved. The teacher will work two examples on the guided notes. (application, interpretation, perspective, and self-knowledge) The teacher will begin the Think, Pair, Share discussion activity. Discuss with a partner the steps to take when solving an exponential equation. This activity will be used for students to work together to solve 4 equations during the lesson. (explanation, interpretation, and self-knowledge) Teacher and students will go over the 4 problems with the entire class for all students to check their work. Teacher will ask if there are any questions. (application, self-knowledge, and interpretation) Teacher will give the students a worksheet on solving exponential equations. (empathy and interpretation) Teacher will check for understanding by asking questions throughout the lesson and a Ticket out the Door (TOTD).
