Exponential & Logarithmic Form

A big thanks to Amy over at Square Root of Negative One Teach Math for helping me come up with an easy way for students to remember logarithmic form.

Pin It Now!


  1. I think this is truly a creative and clever way to help kids remember.

    I do worry, however, about whether it allows students to understand what's happening with log form.

    I do appreciate a good device!

    Have you visited

  2. Love nix the tricks. Great site. This would be a great example. LOL I completely agree that you need to get at the "math" instead of trying to short-cut to "tricks." Kids remember the tricks, but don't always remember why they are doing them. I made a point to show this after we were done with the lesson. It was more an after thought? Very helpful to students who weren't catching on and needed a visual.
