Book Description

This book shows the evolution of logarithmic ideas over 350 years. The author do believes 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.

There are three potential audiences for the book: 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.
