This may sound silly, but I'm in middle and have never seen log before.

Logarithm is related to exponents. It answers "To what power would I have to raise A to equal B?"

For example:

2^3=8

so...

2L8=3

By 2L8, we're asking "To what power would I have to raise 2 for it to equal 8?"

You can get fancy and make fractions with log as well, as in:

9L3 = 1/2, as 9^(1/2)=3 (the square root is the same as raising something to the 1/2 power)

If you check the help section of the web site, there is more formal explanation, and some handy charts to use while playing.

Enjoy!
