Students will transform, solve, and interpret a tumor growth scenario using non-linear differential equation models. Two population growth models (Gompertz and logistic) are applied to model tumor growth. Students use technology to solve the Gompertz model and answer a series of questions designed to further their understanding of growth models and to refine their ability to analyze and compare mathematical models.
