This module is intended to help
you become familiar with these important functions. You will learn how
sketch and recognize their graphs and to solve equations in which they
you will learn how to use them in various applied situations.(See
Module Learning Objectives
for more details.)
This module includes a set of Study
Notes, an on-line Lab
to help reinforce the concepts, and a collection of links to other
on the topic of Exponential and Logarithmic Functions.
It is provided as an aid to independent non-credit study by students who feel a need to improve their understanding of these topics prior to either taking the Math Diagnostic Test, or entering a Calculus course.
There is no assessment or credit available in this context. In order to obtain credit it is necessary to enrol in a course such as Langara's Math 1170. For distance learners, the Open Learning Agency's Math 100 covers similar material.
In a one semester precalculus course the material in this module
takes about two
weeks to complete.
