4.3 Day 1 Logarithmic Graphs

There are many similarities between exponential and logarithmic graphs because they are INVERSES of each other. You will learn how to find the vertical asymptote (there is no horizontal one for these), x-intercept, domain and range and reflect over the x-axis.

4.3 Day 2 Logarithmic Graphs

Now let’s look at reflections over the y-axis. We will compare a basic logarithmic function graph to the graphs when reflected over the x-axis and the y-axis.
