4 Which functions could be used to model these data sets? Caffeine remaining for a non-smoking adult How could you find the parameters?

5 Reflect on your work What types of functions did you use to model the data? Which method of finding parameters did you use? Do you think it was the most effective? How well did your models fit the data? Compare your models with those found by other students. Cup of coffee Which model gave the best fit?
