Population Growth

Unit 4: Populations
Lesson 3 of 10

Objective: Students will be able to differentiate exponential growth from logistic growth and explain how various limiting factors ultimately determine the carrying capacity of an ecosystem.

Big Idea: Populations follow somewhat predictable patterns of growth based on their potential for growth and the environmental pressures they are subject to. Nowhere to go but up? Not so fast... populations can and do crash.
