A textbook for a one semester course in dynamic modeling for non- science majors. Sandefur (Georgetown University) demonstrates how to develop models of simple situations, and identifies what can and cannot be implied by mathematical models. The final two chapters are extended applications of the techniques to model population growth, genetic mutation, and the sustainable harvesting of renewable resources. Annotation c.
