Below is the graph of the boa constrictor population you learned about in the video. The
time in years, and the
), the snake population for any given year. In this case,
= 0 indicates
the year they started keeping track of the constrictor population. Scientists want to know how the
population is changing every two years so they can make predictions about the future.
Analyzing the Data:
1. Is this graph increasing or decreasing? Does this imply that the boa constrictor population is growing
or diminishing? (
