Some information on logarithms that may be included in an algebra 2 course include the relationship between logarithms and exponents and the relationship between the natural logarithm and the constant e. Other material may cover the basic properties of a logarithm, such as subtraction and division.

Algebra 2 coursework on logarithms may also involve techniques for graphing them. Proofs taught may include the identity in which log(a) + log(b) = log(a + b), as well as a * log(b) = log(b^a) and log(a) - log(b) = log(a/b). Students of algebra 2 may also learn how to express the log of one base as a log with a different base.
