And So It Grows: Using a Computer-Based Simulation of a Population Growth Model to Integrate Biology & Mathematics
Street, Garrett M.; Laubach, Timothy A.
American Biology Teacher, v75 n4 p274-279 Apr 2013
We provide a 5E structured-inquiry lesson so that students can learn more of the mathematics behind the logistic model of population biology. By using models and mathematics, students understand how population dynamics can be influenced by relatively simple changes in the environment.
