Chaotic Maps

Chaotic dynamics of nonlinear maps is explained and illustrated by means of tiny Java applets. There are several reasons to investigate nonlinear maps. Maps dynamics is very complicated and PC makes quickly enough amazing fractal pictures (integration of differential equations is much more boring). One can study flows dynamics by Poincare maps too. Surprisingly, very simple maps turn out to yield rather good qualitative models for behavior in ordinary and partial differential equations.

More Than Math

More Than Math integrates the visual arts into the 3rd, 4th and 5th grade mathematics curriculum using works of art from the collection of the Asheville Art Museum as the basis for problematic mathematical tasks using NC Standard Course of Study goals and objectives. More Than Math introduces and explores concepts shared by mathematics and the visual arts such as pattern, symmetry, proportion, perspective, balance and geometric form and stresses the importance of each individual’s perspective. A project of the Asheville Art Museum with support from the UNC-CH School of Education. Flash applets created by Drew Johnston.
