Algebra II Module 3, Topic C, Overview

Students On Computers

In Topic C, students graph logarithmic functions, identifying key features (F-IF.4, F-IF.7) and discover how the logarithmic properties are evidenced in the graphs of corresponding logarithmic functions.   The inverse relationship between an exponential function and its corresponding logarithmic function is made explicit (F-BF.3).  In the final lesson in Topic C, students synthesize what they know about linear, quadratic, sinusoidal, and exponential functions to determine which function is most appropriate to use to model a variety of real-world scenarios (F-BF.1a).
