Description

Designed as a self-contained teaching aid for senior school pupils and others interested in pure and applied mathematics, this book places programmes written in BBC BASIC alongside a careful explanatory text. It shows how, with modest equipment and elementary programming, it is possible to generate a wealth of striking results and encourages readers to make their own programming experiments along similar lines. Subjects covered are wide in range and include: ecological modelling and "chaos", fractals in geometry, complex numbers with applications, the Mandlebrot set and a very basic aircraft landing simulator. Giving readers access to practical demonstrations which can be adapted or extended as required, this is a student guide which aims to illustrate pure and applied mathematics in a lively and dynamic way.show more
