A group of students in a Dutch teacher-training-program were given a collection of fragments from different textbooks, to devise a lesson-plan for the introduction of the concept logarithm.

Some students only used biographical information on the inventor of logarithms, others used exercises and a logarithmic table to enhance the comprehension of the concept.
