An Invitation to Modeling: Resource-Limited Population Growth Activity

Most students have seen an exponential model for population growth and know that it predicts unlimited growth. Better models, such as the logistic growth model, should incorporate assumptions to account for limitation of resources. In this activity, participants collect data from a physical simulation of resource-limited growth, prepare a variety of graphs to visualize the data, construct a verbal model based on their observations and the graphs, and (for those who want to go this far) construct a symbolic model from the verbal model.

Evolution in Action: Using Models to Explore the Molecular Basis of Insecticide Resistance

The central theme of this workshop is exploring the molecular basis of insecticide resistance in a case study approach that enforces a conceptual understanding of a variety of topics in the context of preventing the spread of Zika virus. The interactive models used in this workshop can be borrowed from the MSOE Model Lending Library or purchased from 3D Molecular Designs. I've included "briefs" that describe activities associated with a wide range of models that lay the conceptual foundation for the case study, as well as case study files (which are numbered). More information about using various models can be found at the 3D Molecular Designs website under Teaching Resources.
