Now that we've (almost) all created a Discourse account, updated our personal info, and uploaded at least one picture, let's try something a little more mathy. First, generate your own, personal logistic function on this web oracle that I set up for exactly that purpose. Then, reply to this post showing everybody

- Exactly what your personal logistic function is,
- The graph of your personal logistic function, and
- The time series graph of the first few iterates starting from $x_0=0.1$.

A few comments are in order:

- You should enter the formula for you personal logistic function in LaTeX format. It's really not hard! If my function was $f(x)=x^2-1$, I'd enter
`$f(x)=x^2-1$`

. We'll practice in class. - The graphs should be electronically produced logical tools include
- Desmos
- Wolfram|Alpha
- My own Easy plot

All the graphs should look almost identical. If you examine the $y$-scale, however, you'll notice that their heights vary. You might mention the maximum height to help distinguish your graph.

The first two are, of course, *very* nice but you need an account to generate a PNG that you can upload here - unless, you're happy with a screen grab.

The time series plot is trickier but the tool on my iteration tutorial is designed to do exactly that.
