(Open note) Possible quiz topics for wednesday:
- Basic questions about functions and their inverses. You may want to go back to the unit on functions for review.
- What does it mean for a function to be one to one?
- Why does the horizontal line test work?
- Explain how video 5 defines the number e.
- Give a verbal description of the meaning of the log of a number with a given base.
- Convert equations from logarithmic form to exponential form and visa versa.
- Sketch the graphs of exponential and logarithmic functions on the same axes. Describe their domains and ranges.
