Fractals In The Schools teach kids about fractals and chaos theory rich curriculum of teaching materials, fractal activities and custom that Nature is full of fractals, teach kids how http://www.fractalfoundation.org/schooltours.html
Extractions: We are creating an educational program to teach kids about fractals and chaos theory. For several years, Jonathan Wolfe and Jonathan Leavitt have been giving informal fractal presentations in schools, ranging from kindergarten classes at Alameda Elementary School to the University of New Mexico Honors Program. It is always amazing to see how receptive and excited the children are when they see fractals for the first time, and they realize that what they are seeing is the beauty of math. Suddenly math transforms from something hard, boring, and useless into a fun, exciting, and magical realm to explore. We have seen it work again and again. We plan to do this on a large enough scale as to have a measurable positive impact on the science and math test scores of the classes we present to. We are currently developing a rich curriculum of teaching materials, fractal activities and custom software for kids at several levels. Show kids that Nature is full of fractals, teach kids how to explore fractals by themselves with a computer, and suddenly we have a classroom of little mathematicians. Photo by Carole Devillers Having learned how to create beautiful fractals of their own, the kids will be invited to participate in our Annual Fractal Design Contest. Each class will choose their favorite student-created image and submit it to the Foundation. These will all be featured in a gallery on this website, and the class that produces the finest of these images will receive a prize of a model balloon, printed with their fractal design.

Introduction To Complex Systems The first goal is to teach WHY complex system theory (such as oscillation, chaos, fractals and so on Extraclass activities in connection with complex system http://www.kzoo.edu/physics/ccss/materials/intsyllab.html
Extractions: Topic: The discipline of 'Complex Systems' studies discusses how collective behavior emerges from the parts of a system, due to the interaction between the system and its environment. You will learn the basic concepts and methods of complex system research. Both historical and present-day appraoches will be mentioned. It will be emphasized that since many systems of very different fields, such as physics, chemistry, biology, economics, psychology and sociology etc. have similar architecture, very different phenomena of nature and society can be analyzed and understood by using a common approach called 'system thinking'. Goal: The first goal is to teach WHY complex systems research is important in understanding the structure, function and dynamics of complex natural and social phenomena. The second goal is to give an introductory overview about HOW the fundamental methods of complex system research works. The course is not highly technical mathematically, but teaches and uses the basic mathematical notions of dynamical system theory (such as oscillation, chaos, fractals and so on.) Not only students of science majors, but social science students (with some mathematical interest and skill) are expected to take the class. Course Structure: Ten topics will be discussed. We shall spend one week on each topic. The three days will be dedicated to (i) conceptual approaches, (ii) mathematical tools, (iii) applications. Reading schedule: it is suggested that students read the text assigned before class each week. You should know that each topic is reviewed from the bird-eye perspective, and might be the subject of the whole course!
Frederick H. Willeboordse Courses that I teach this year. will provide a firsthand impression of recent activities in the field chaos, fractals and their Relevance to Understanding Nature. http://chaos.nus.edu.sg/teaching/main.html
Extractions: General Comments Generally teaching is an enjoyable experience to me and I try to make it an enjoyable experience for my students too. Without wanting to go into too many clichés, I believe that a successful course leaves the feeling: "Hey, this was fun and I learned something too!". In order for a course to really be fun, I try to stimulate creative thinking as much as possible and attempt to guide to knowledge through discovery. If you have any comments, please do let me know! Courses that I teach this year Previously offered Courses Teaching Portfolio Life as a complex system (GEK1530) Synopsis Underlying the ideas of life as a complex system is the notion that complex systems have intrinsic properties that can lead to unexpected but robust and adaptable dynamics. This is rather different from the view that evolution is a random walk over adaptation space.

Extractions: My varied expertise allows me to teach different courses. I have taught Zoology, Communication, and a wide variety of Technology Literacy Courses at different times. Also I teach and conduct workshops on Information Technologies, again with emphasis on the Internet and the Web. My research and consulting interests are in the areas of "Collaborative Learning Technologies" and "Nonlinear Systems" as exemplified by the Internet and the Web, using Chaos, Fractals, Self-organization, and Complexity models. Inherent in this model is the integrative aspect of interdisciplinarity, and the evolution of new learning structures in the natural and cultural systems defined in today's academy.

Extractions: Australian Math Society Web Site - the Gazette In 1984, as a second year undergraduate at the University of Adelaide, I was taught a course in continuum mechanics by a young lecturer by the name of Tony Roberts. I remember the course being very clear, well structured and was inspirational enough that this first course lead me to a career in applied mathematics. It is with a certain irony that, eleven years later, I find myself lecturing a course on continuum mechanics and reviewing a book that has as its genesis, the course I saw as a student. Perhaps I should add that this year I successfully used part of this book on one-dimensional continuum mechanics as the introductory part of the course I teach. My only regret being that I didn't use Tony Roberts' text for more of the course. This book is different from many other texts on continuum mechanics which often begin with three-dimensional dynamics and stress-strain tensors. Many of the important concepts of continuum mechanics can be taught using only one-dimensional models which are easier for the student to understand. The transition to higher dimensions is then straightforward.
