This is not really a complete answer to your question (which is pretty broad), but would not have fit in a comment. What is described in the quoted text is one person's particular way of implemented a flipped classroom. One thing that I find sad about it is that it never mentions the role of a textbook in presenting the material -- which is impossible to do ...

Explain what you explained here to start the interview. Do a 3-5 minute intro that introduces logarithms the way your video would introduce it. Then spend the rest of the time doing whatever else you would do in class. Bring the activity with you. Hand it out to the committee. Basically I don't see any reason to do anything other than give a faithful ...

I introduce logarithms as answering the question "to what power do I raise this base to get this result?" Ideally I would review exponents beforehand, but 7 minutes is no time at all. Presumably these students will be familiar with exponents, so you can pose problems like $$2^{x}=32$$ $$3^{x}=27$$ $$4^{x}=16$$ Then you can introduce the $\log$ ...

Benjamin Hutz has a recent book that could be appropriate: An Experimental Introduction to Number Theory. This book presents material suitable for an undergraduate course in elementary number theory from a computational perspective. It seeks to not only introduce students to the standard topics in elementary number theory, such as prime factorization and ...
