Algebra Nspirations: Logarithms and Logarithmic Functions

This video begins with the historical invention of logarithms that forever changed the world of computation—until the advent of calculators more than 300 years later. Written and hosted by internationally acclaimed math educator Dr. Monica Neagoy, it proceeds to derive the properties of logs, examine logarithmic functions and graphs, and finally explore the well-known Richter logarithmic scale. Concepts explored: functions and inverse functions, logarithms, exponential functions, logarithmic functions.
