Logarithmic differentiation modules
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.
Multiplication to addition
Two young mathematicians think about derivatives and logarithms.
We use logarithms to help us differentiate.
