As a calculus teacher, do you look for activities that present calculus concepts beyond what textbooks offer? If you do, then consider combining “Newton’s Method for Approximating Zeros” with Chaos Theory and the aesthetics of art in a student project.
The mathematics of this project entails “Newton’s Method for Approximating Zeros” along with an examination and application of “Sensitive dependency on Initial Conditions or Initial Guesses” to create mathematical art.
Besides offering a wider perspective and the opportunity to dwell deeper into these mathematical concepts, the students get to display their ingenuity and creativity, which is a part of mathematics that students are seldom exposed to.
