As I mentioned recently, I taught the last two weeks of my colleague’s differential equations course. The topic was discrete dynamical systems. I posted links to a few Geogebra applets that I made, namely, applets for illustrating one-dimensional dynamical systems and an applet to generate cobweb plots for the logistic map. This is my third and…

## Cobweb plots for the logistic map: a Geogebra applet

A few days ago I posted Geogebra applets illustrating discrete dynamical systems. I was using these in a differential equations lecture that I gave. In the next lecture I showed the students how to draw cobweb plots for 1-dimensional discrete dynamical systems. A discrete dynamical system is a function in which the range is a…

## Applet for discrete dynamical systems

I’m teaching the last two weeks of one of my colleagues’ Differential Equations course. I’m leading the class through a chapter on discrete dynamical systems. In preparation for the first lecture I created a couple of java applets using Geogebra. I thought others might be interested in them, so I’m linking to them here. The…
