 # The Graph of the Natural Logarithm Function

##### This The Graph of the Natural Logarithm Function lesson plan also includes:

If two is company and three's a crowd, then what's e? Scholars observe how changes in the base affect the graph of a logarithmic function. They then graph the natural logarithm function and learn that all logarithmic functions can be described as transformation of this function.

CCSS: Designed

##### Instructional Ideas

• Allow the class to choose their own base in addition to those listed in the lesson
##### Classroom Considerations

• Lesson requires knowledge of the change of base formula and transformations of logarithmic functions covered in previous lessons
• Provide learners with graphing calculators to investigate the graphs of logarithmic functions of different bases
##### Pros

• Teacher guide includes scaffolding tips, including those for English language learners
• By highlighting mathematical practices, the resource lets teachers know they should pay attention to these practices during instruction

• None
