Human Demographics part of Examples
In this biology simulation students explore factors that change human population growth including age at which women begin to bear children, fertility rate and death rate.

Subject: Environmental Science:Human Population:Developing/Developed Countries, Sociology, Environmental Science:Human Population, Environmental Science, Education, Biology

Genetic Drift part of Examples
In this biology simulation, students use a mathematical simulation of genetic drift to answer questions about the factors that influence this evolutionary process. Students run a series of simulations varying allele frequency and population size and then analyze their data and propose a model to explain their results.
