Logistic Growth

Through the exploration of population growth of a bacteria population, students learn about and observe bacteria population over a 20 hour period.  Students graph the population growth using a scatter plot and discuss its logistic growth.  Students plot instantaneous rate of pop. growth v. time.  Students find the derivative of the logistic growth function model and discuss bounds and inflection points.
