Ecosystem Simulations and Chaos on the Graphing Calculator

Robb Sinn 

October 2007, Volume 101, Issue 3, Page 167

Abstract:
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.
