  1. 1-018-S-LogisticPopGrowth

    04 Jun 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel

    We offer artificial (toy) and historical data on limited growth population situations in the study of protozoa and lead students through several approaches to estimating parameters and determining the validity of the logistic  model in these situations. 

  2. 1-062-S-BacterialGrowth

    15 Sep 2018 | | Contributor(s):: Arati Nanda Pati

    We offer students a simulation experience or data from a simulation and ask them to model the simulation using several approaches andusing EXCEL spreadsheet. In this particular modeling scenario, we know the exact solution and want to see how various models predict our expectations. We have used...
