The majority of the dynamics displayed by highly complicated nonlinear systems also appear for straightforward nonlinear systems. The readers is first brought to the tent function, which consists of two straight lines. The graphical approach to iteration is introduced by using this simple function because the constructions could be transported by helping cover their graph paper, rule, and pencil. The readers can also be proven how you can graph composite functions. The machine can show periodicity, mixing, and sensitivity to initial conditions, the fundamental ingredients for chaos.
