Discrete Dynamical Modeling.
Sandefur, James T.
College Mathematics Journal, v22 n1 p13-22 Jan 1991
Discussed is the process of translating situations involving changing quantities into mathematical relationships. This process, called dynamical modeling, allows students to learn new mathematics while sharpening their algebraic skills. A description of dynamical systems, problem-solving methods, a graphical analysis, and available classroom materials are presented. (KR)
