MCS Faculty Book Published

Posted on March 24th, 2021 by

 

Tom LoFaro and Jeff Ford have completed their textbook Discovering Dynamical Systems Through Experiment and Inquiry.  The book is published by CRC Press and is available through most on-line booksellers.

The book provides an introduction to discrete dynamical systems using Inquiry-based Learning or IBL for short.  As the title of the book suggests, students are led to discover general properties of dynamical systems and then encouraged to use these insights to prove general theorems.  Many of the exploration activities are done using  activities found on their website ibldynamics.com.

Tom and Jeff were helped by several MCS students during this project including Emilee Mason and Zach Dawson.
