There were 20 correct responses from those students who had no physics exposure in high school or who had taken a physics course(s) in high school but indicated the course(s) had no coverage of log paper. This might seem counterintuitive that this grouping would have correct answers; however, upon interviewing these students it was discovered that 16 of 20 have had log paper exposure in high school and/or college non-physics courses.
However, what appears most surprising to the author is that only 35 of 88 respondents who had taken a physics course while in high school reported having been exposed to log paper and of those, only 18 responded correctly.
Rather then didacticly presenting high school students with the benefits of using log paper, have students solve a real-world problem in the lab; it is both time-efficient and pedagogically beneficial.
