Math CentralQuandaries & Queries


Question from BEA, a student:

what is the use of logarithmic functions in real life or daily life?

Hi Bea,

I have two suggestions for you.

  • Go to the Quandaries and Queries page on Math Central
    and use the Quick Search o search for the term math beyond school logs. Look at the items that are returned.

  • Go to the Math Beyond School section of Math Central
    and use the Search mechanism to search for the term log.
