In this section we will look at exponential & logarithm functions. Both of these functions are extremely important and have to be understood through anyone who is going on to later on math courses. These functions also contain applications in engineering, science and business to name a few areas. Actually, these functions can illustrate in just about any field that uses even a small degree of mathematics.
Several students find these to be difficult functions to deal with, especially logarithms. It is possibly because they are so distinct from any of the other functions which they've looked at to this point & logarithms utilizes a notation which will be new to almost everyone in an algebra class. Though, you will determine that once you get past the notation and begin to understand some properties they actually aren't too bad.
