Lesson 5-2: Logarithmic Functions


The student will be able to graph exponential functions and explore the nature of exponential functions and how they relate to real-world situations.

  1. Move your mouse over the equations to see the graphs - there are log and exponential graphs.
  2. Pay attention to where asymptotes are and whether the graph is showing growth or decay!
  3. Compare the log graphs to the exponential graphs!

Enter values of 2 and 10 raised to a power for x.
