Growth and Change in the Natural World MCR3U/MCF3M/MBF3C

Growth and Change in the Natural World MCR3U/MCF3M/MBF3C

Students explore how scientists use exponential functions to model growth and change in the natural world. In our hands-on lab students handle real specimens and analyze data to determine growth and decay patterns. In the museum's life science and dinosaur galleries students discover the key role exponential growth plays in understanding how individuals and populations grow, famous predator-prey population cycles, and the consequences of unchecked exponential growth in invasive species.

Curriculum Links: distinguish exponential functions from linear and quadratic functions; identify real-world applications of exponential functions involving growth and decay; solve problems using graphs or equations of exponential functions arising from a variety of real-world applications
