We're starting logarithms in pre-cal today. They had a little bit of logarithms last year in Algebra 2, but for whatever reason, logs give kids trouble, so I always teach it like they've never seen it before. We're going to start with evaluating logarithms. I've compiled several resources from the Mathtwitterblogosphere, but I don't remember exactly where they all came from. If I got something from you, leave me a note in the comments and I'll give you your much deserved credit!
