The primary aim of this project is to draw a connection between differential equations and vector calculus, using population ecology modeling as a vehicle. This setting allows us to also employ multivariable optimization as a means of model fitting and multivariable integration in the context of density functions. The project is designed for advanced first-year undergraduates in a multivariable and vector calculus course, with a background in differential equations.
