Salt and pepper…..peanut butter and jelly….science and math—without math, science just wouldn’t be the same! Math can reveal and relate what scientists discover by helping them find relationships between an experiment’s hypothesis and the data that is collected. In this program students will learn about evolutionary biology and how to use mathematical modeling to predict how populations will change over time. Students will be learning about how intra- and inter-species interactions can help or hinder population dynamics and will use the program Vensim to mathematically model these dynamics.
