This product covers the concepts of graphing and transforming logarithmic functions. In the lesson students will graph logarithmic functions by converting them into exponential functions. They will then fill in a table "backwards" to help them graph the functions. Students will then observe that when graphing, if logarithmic functions are in the "proper" form, the x-intercept is always 1, and the point (b, 1) is a point on the line, where b is the base of the logarithm. Students will then transform the parent function. Hopefully at this point in their studies, students are comfortable with basic transformations. However if they aren’t, I included a reference guide at the end of the lesson. Students will also have to identify x-intercepts, y-intercepts, if they exist, and asymptotes.
