Optimal Foraging / Predator Feeding Strategies
This project was designed as a stand alone practical investigation into predator feeding strategies and behaviour for a high ability Yr8 group towards the end of the year. The project incorporates biological modelling, mathematical formulae, practical investigation, evaluative skills, and a great deal of higher thinking - it is not a lesson for the faint-hearted. Included here are lesson plans (2-3 lessons), a powerpoint, pupil booklet, and a spreadhseet of example results which is useful projected onto an IWB
