Unit 4: EXPONENTIAL AND LOGARITHMIC FUNCTIONS
By the end of this unit, you should be able to say “I CAN”…
Goal. The students will demonstrate the ability to use the laws of exponents and logarithms and apply them to real-world situations.
a. Simplify expressions containing radicals or rational exponents.
b. Graph and identify transformations of exponential functions, including the number e.
c. Use exponential functions to model and solve real-world problems.
d. Graph and identify transformations of logarithmic functions.
e. Evaluate logarithms to any base with and without a calculator.
f. Apply properties and laws of logarithms to simplify and evaluate expressions.
g. Solve exponential and logarithmic equations.
h. Use exponential, logarithmic, and logistic models to solve real-world problems.
