The students will act as professional mathematical consultants and write a report analyzing the client's problem. The client company is a fictional organization which advocates for the use of trap-neuter-return (TNR) as a control method for feral cat colonies. The students will utilize modified exponential growth models to analyze the efficacy of TNR compared to a euthanasia program.
