Extreme Math & Science Friday: Foraging

Extreme Math & Science Friday: Foraging

Today in Extreme Math and Science, the students created a fitness modeling using excel, dice, and a dragonfly model. The students played a game simulating the life of a dragonfly and made decisions about foraging, mates and risk.  Based on their findings, the students them analyzed any errors they may have made and whether those errors were statistically significant.

Ask your student: What is foraging? (Foraging is searching for wild food resources. It affects an animal’s fitness because it plays an important role in an animal’s ability to survive and reproduce.)
