In this chapter we are going to look at exponential and logarithm functions. Both of these
functions are very important and need to be understood by anyone who is going on to later math
courses. These functions also have applications in science, engineering, and business to name a
few areas. In fact, these functions can show up in just about any field that uses even a small
degree of mathematics.
Many students find these to be difficult functions to deal with, especially logarithms. This is
probably because they are so different from any of the other functions that they’ve looked at to
this point and logarithms use a notation that will be new to almost everyone in an algebra class.
However, you will find that once you get past the notation and start to understand some of their
properties they really aren’t too bad.
