Population Dynamics Inquiry Simulation

Type of Resource



Students use an online simulation (https://www.biologysimulations.com/population-dynamics) to test a self-developed hypothesis. The simulation includes a plant, prey, and predator species. Students can manipulate the predator and prey starting populations, reproductive rate, and the amount of food needed for survival.
