Abstract

The study of dynamical systems is significant in mathematics education. The medium of the Internet and the World-Wide Web (WWW) opens new avenues in dynamical systems education. The following aspects of the WWW technology pertaining to dynamical systems education are studied: representation of mathematical documentation; issues in design and development of computer programs for carrying out client- and server-side computations; use of multimedia, in particular computer-graphics, animation and sound; significance of locally accessible databases and search strategies; use of interactive and noninteractive communication tools; development of tools for assessment. Usability, advantages and limitations of the tools and techniques involved are pointed out. Applications to teaching dynamical systems topics in traditional areas of mathematics, and to teaching the specific topic of iteration of functions and fixed points in a real-environment of classroom are discussed.
