Perform the Procedure part of the Experiment, and then answer Questions 2-4 briefly. You should turn in your charts for both families. Look at Note 1 if you are having difficulty determining which windows are the largest. Here is a sample of the chart that you should hand in for each family of functions.
Use the quadratic or logistic map applets to display the corresponding orbit diagrams. The program initially computes 200 points on the orbit of the critical point for your function, but then displays only the last 100. You may change each of these numbers manually. As you zoom, you will generally need to increase the number of iterations.
The orbit diagram is always displayed using the orbit of the critical point: you cannot change this with this software. We'll see why we do this later.
Think about Question 5, but do not hand anything in on this topic (yet).
