- Key College Publishing
Iterative Algebra and Dynamic Modeling links together the use of technology (Excel spreadsheets, Stella modeling software) and modern mathematical techniques to explore the interaction of algebra (at the pre-calculus level) with computer and graphing calculator technology. This book was developed to teach modern applications of mathematics at an introductory level. It is based on the authors well-received teacher-training workshops using the materials.
