Research-based guidance and classroom activities for teachers of mathematics

Rabbits

Rabbits is a task from cre8ate maths that is available to download from the National STEM Centre eLibrary.

A spreadsheet containing data about an expanding rabbit population is supplied. Students are challenged to create a simulation for the growth of the population that reflects the data. This is an ambitious challenge, but one which gets to the heart of how probabilities can be used to model uncertain situations.
