In the year 1492, a drawing was made of the Vitruvian man.
The artist who had made the drawing was Leonardo DaVinci, who was interested in the
idea that man was related to nature.
Along with the drawing, DaVinci wrote down a few proport
Purpose: To determine, using simulation, the relationship between predator and prey.
Problem: What is the relationship between predator and prey populations?
Introduction: Have you ever wondered how prey and predators affect each other? It may seem like u
Phi shows up in many places.
The number five is also related to Phi.
You can calculate Phi by the formula 5^ .
5* 5+ .
You also have five senses, five fingers on your hands, five toes on your feet, and five
openings on your head.

What Would Happen if You Modified a Particular Aspect of Neuron Function?
In the questions below, test your understanding of the various parts of the nervous system
by asking yourself what would happen if (some part) was damaged. What would the
In vertebrates, the endocrine and nervous systems maintain primary control over homeostasis. In the endocrine system, messages (hormone signals) are transmitted through the circulatory system to all cells of the body. Only the cells that have appropriate
Now, I realize that they both affects each other the same, because predator population mirrors the preys' population after some lag time (usually a generation or two). When the mice population reached fifty, just the next generation the hawks reached the
There will be at least one hawk in every generation.
1. If the populations fall below this numbers, we assume that they are replaced
2. One generation is completed every time a hawk, or a group of hawks catches mice. 3. A hawk dies if i
Additionally, the frequency of EPSPs and IPSPs generated is also a factor in determining if an action potential is generated. EPSPs must add together and outnumber IPSPs in order to generate an action potential. If EPSPs occur multiple times at a single s

9 grams after it was put into distilled water.
This can be verified by looking at all the other groups that put their egg into the
