Continuous Growth Models

Tony Weisstein

From the Biological ESTEEM collection

ESTEEM Category



This worksheet compares user-input growth data with predictions under linear, exponential, and logistic models of growth. Students can input parameters for each model; the program graphs the results and computes a crude goodness-of-fit measure. Introduces concepts of modeling and statistical analysis that can be more thoroughly explored using standard statistics software (JMP, SAS, etc.)
