iSTEM: A Fibonacci simple ecosystem: Prey and predator

Jorge Garcia: Edited by Terri L. Kurz 

February 2014, Volume 20, Issue 6, Page 392

Abstract:
Predators and prey in the population of an ecosystem can be evaluated and investigated with mathematical explorations. Intermediate elementary students explore Fibonacci sequences in relation to prey and discuss models to maintain a balance between the species through mathematics by modifying variables. iSTEM (Integrating Science, Technology, and Engineering in Mathematics) authors share ideas and activities that stimulate student interest in the integrated fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) in Kā€“grade 6 classroom.
