Logarithm Word Problems

On January 24th/28th we:

  • learned how to solve logarithmic word problems (here is the lesson)
  • were assigned section 7.8

Your unit test is tentatively scheduled for February 4th/7th and will cover the following learning outcomes:

  • L.O. 12: Demonstrate an understanding of the definition of logarithms. (No calculator)
  • L.O. 13: Graph and analyze exponential and logarithmic functions. (No calculator)
  • L.O. 14: Demonstrate an understanding of the product, quotient, and power laws of logarithms. (No calculator)
  • L.O. 15: Solve problems that involve exponential and logarithmic equations.
  • L.O. 16: Solve problems that involve exponential and logarithmic equations.
  • L.O. 17: Solve problems involving natural logarithms.

You will have a two-part midterm exam on February 18th – 21st that covers the material we have learned so far this year.  More details will be announced in the coming weeks, but here is some extra review material.

Quiz and then Log Laws

Just a quick note to 2-1 and 2-4… The TOC didn’t check the note and assigned the incorrect section!

The lesson was meant to be Logarithm Laws (section 7.5).

We will do this next class. Ignore what he told you was assigned today.

Hopefully I’ll be back and feeling better soon!
