Logistic Growth

Through the exploration of population growth of a bacteria population, high schoolers 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.  High schoolers plot instantaneous rate of pop. growth v. time.  Students find the derivative of the logistic growth function model and discuss bounds and inflection points.

Starting a new program means developing new lesson plans. I was surprised to see hundreds of lesson plans already created for my classroom subject. This gives me the inspiration I need to create my own. Many great ideas - a gold mine.
