Cobwebbing applet

I found an applet on http://mathinsight.org/applet/function_iteration_cobweb_combined. I'm going to talk about it a little bit and then embed it here. This should allow you to fiddle with cobwebs a little easier.

The left frame shows the cobweb diagram (horizontal axis y or "input" and vertical axis z or "output"). In blue is the reproduction function (z=f(x)) derived from the difference equation (x_{n+1}=f(x_{n})) and in red is (z=y). You have the ability to enter in a new reproduction curve and initial condition but make sure you hit Enter for the changes to take effect. Tapping the iterate button will start the difference equation by plotting (x_n) one at a time. Hitting reset will clear stuff and in the upper right you have navigation controls. The right panel is a time series for the difference equation showing you the same data, but as it would appear as collected data.

Modeling contests for undergraduates

Some people structure their modeling course so that students can participate in a modeling competition. COMAP has many textbooks to support mathematical modeling as well.

Peer-review in applied mathematics writing

This is a collaboration in calculus II with the writing director on best practices in peer-review.   This link is to the version on arxiv, but the full is published in PRIMUS.
