Oh, Deer!: Predator and Prey Relationships--Students Make Natural Connections through the Integration of Mathematics and Science
Reeder, Stacy; Moseley, Christine
Science Activities: Classroom Projects and Curriculum Ideas, v43 n3 p9-14 Fall 2006
This article describes an activity that integrates both mathematics and science while inviting students to make connections between the two and learn significant concepts in a meaningful way. Students work within the real-world context of wildlife population scenarios to make predictions, test their hypotheses, and determine and construct graphs that best represent their data while learning the importance of animal habitats and the factors that impact wildlife populations in continually changing ecosystems. Discussion and experiences with students prior to this activity should ensure that they understand ideas about carrying capacity, components of habitat, and limiting factors. (Contains 3 figures.)
