Suppose You’re A Deer... ✤ Each ______ represents a _________. ✤ Each __________ represents a ________. ✤ To feed yourself, grab bean and place it in your dear. ✤ > 1 bean will cause your deer’s stomach to __________... it’s science. ✤ If the Number of Beans in Your Cup After 1 Minute = b, then the following is true: ✤ b < 20 ; ✤ b = 20 ; ✤ 20 ≤ b < 40 ; ✤ 40 ≤ b < 60 ; 1 deer you die... you live! you live and propagate! cup year minute explode

By the Way... You’ll Need a Table YearPopulationBirthsDeathsEnd PopulationChange 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

And Now You Need a Graph... ✤ Cue clever graph thing to fall in... ✤ Show real graph and give time for individuals to create and plot.

✤ Before you get all your numbers written in pen, write a large 0 (zero) in the bottom left corner of your graph. Let’s Graph It On! 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 100 90 80 70 60 50 40 30 20 10 Deer Years Buck Up [Deer vs. Year] Classic Misconception
