## Overview

After completing this section, students should be able to do the following.

- Identify situations where logs can be used to help find derivatives.
- Use logarithmic differentiation to simplify taking derivatives.
- Take derivatives of functions raised to functions.
- Recognize the difference between a variable in the base and a variable in the exponent.
