Video Transcript: Algebra Applications: Logarithmic Functions, Segment 2: Hearing Loss

This is the transcript for the video of same title. Video contents: We live in a noisy world. In fact, prolonged exposure to noise can cause hearing loss. Students analyze the noise level at a rock concert and determine the ideal distance where the noise level is out of the harmful range. Using the TI-Nspire's Geometry tools, student create a mathematical simulation of the decibel level as a function of distance.
