Lesson Plan: Logarithmic Functions Mathematics

This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to identify, write, and evaluate a logarithmic function as an inverse of the exponential function.

Objectives

Students will be able to

  • find the inverse of an exponential function using logarithms,
  • evaluate a logarithmic function at a given point,
  • identify the domain and range of logarithmic functions,
  • find the solution set to simple logarithmic equations by converting them to exponential equations,
  • solve word problems involving logarithmic functions.

Prerequisites

Students should already be familiar with

  • the exponential function,
  • finding the inverse of a function,
  • how the domain and range of inverse functions relate to one another,
  • logarithm notation.

Exclusions

Students will not cover

  • graphs of logarithmic functions.
