Ecosystem Simulations and Chaos on the Graphing Calculator
October 2007, Volume 101, Issue 3, Page 167
An eighth grade algebra class used graphing calculators to
simulate ecosystems. One simulation introduced mathematical chaos.The students
were able to explore the iteration theory using a graphing calculator. Three
classroom-ready worksheets are included. Science connections include
equilibrium, and carrying capacity of ecosystem.
