Modelling Situations with Logarithmic and Exponential Functions

How do I model situations with logarithmic and exponential functions?

In this post, we will be modelling situations and solve simple equations involving logarithmic or exponential functions algebraically and graphically identify contexts suitable for modelling by exponential and logarithmic functions and use these functions to solve practical problems, as a part of the Prelim Maths Advanced course under the topic Exponential and Logarithmic Functions and sub-part Graphs and Applications of Exponential and Logarithmic Functions.

 

The following three videos cover real-world applications of logarithmic and exponential functions, expressed as worded questions.

Part 1

 

Part 2: Compound Interest
