Description:In these lecture notes, simulations in Excel and R illuminate basic

mathematical concepts. Using the same basic design of a spreadsheet, we can scale up to more difficult problems. Beginning with simple functions and their graphs we move to constrained optimization, dynamics, linear algebra and randomness. Each chapter is brief and can be covered in a one hour lecture, allowing us to spend time actively simulating, and delighting in the unity of mathematical concepts and their numerical and graphical representation. Towards the end, the unity of the functions whether static or dynamic, deterministic or stochastic, is emphasized with some graph algebra figures.
