    Logarithmic functions have an interesting history. Although John Napier is credited for popularizing logs, there are earlier developments that include another mathematician who developed logs earlier and independently. Furthermore, logarithms became especially important for allowing difficult calculations prior to the development of inexpensive electronic calculators. Using the Library and other resources, please research and discuss the following:

    * the interpretation of natural logs and common logs
    * how logarithms make scientific calculations easier
    * specific applications of logarithms in science and engineering
