Students explore the concept of population growth. In this population growth lesson, students graph the population growth of a 'calcumite' which is a made up species whose population grows exponentially. Students plot the data over the course of 9 generations and find an exponential function that models the data.

I subscribed to Lesson Planet after I started teaching science at my district's alternative school. Science isn't my specialty so it has been a real life saver! I am able to find lots resources to enrich my lessons! It's a tremendous time saver too! Why reinvent the wheel?
