Math CentralQuandaries & Queries


Question from Marsia, a student:

How would you describe to another student what the graph of a logarithmic function looks like?


The easiest way would be to draw a diagram. If this is impossible I would say that in the Cartesian plane it lies to the right of the y-axis, it is increasing, it is asymptotic to the negative y-axis and it crosses the x-axis at (1,0).
