In this activity, students will explore the concept of binary fission, generation time, and bacterial growth curves, with an emphasis on the log phase. Students will use semi-log graphs and linear graphs to plot bacterial cell growth.


In this adaptation, the activity was shortened a bit and there is a companion Desmos activity.
