Fractals & Chaos Assignment for 4/26

Use the cobweb diagram apps on MathInsight.org to analyze the non-linear functions of Part 4 of the Iterated Functions sheet (use this Supplement to record your answers). Work up to 4g.

We’re working on some more iterating functions in class, but tonight I want you to read this article from Scientific American: Chaos and Fractals in Human Physiology. It talks about many of the same ideas discussed in the NOVA documentary we watched, but there’s some very important clues on some upcoming phenomena that I want you to pay attention to also.
