Extreme Math & Science @ IMSA – Monday: Gettin’ Fit
Today in Extreme Math and Science, the students learned the basics of ecology, fitness, and behavior where they devised their own methods to see if they could figure out how many beans were in a flask without directly counting them. This activity can be translated to the real world in a sense that they were estimating unknown populations of a species or number of particles.
Ask your student: What is fitness? (In genetic terms, the probability of finding one of your genes in future generations.)
