Number of pages: 112

Description:
These materials show the evolution of logarithmic ideas over 350 years. I do believe that a quick review of mathematics as it was practiced for hundreds of years would be helpful for many students in understanding logarithms as they are still used today. I see three potential audiences for this material: 1.) students who have never studied logarithms, 2.) students who have studied logarithms but who did not master the concepts or have forgotten key ideas, or 3.) summer school reading for students taking calculus in the fall.
