The Population Game: A Socially Significant Laboratory Activity
The Physics Teacher
A game-like activity using dice-like cubes can bring population growth home to all students, scientists, and nonscientists alike, while demonstrating many aspects of probability and uncertainty that are too often ignored in the physics curriculum. The activity can proceed at a variety of levels of sophistication and complication, from a simple demonstration of exponential growth through an elaborate modeling of life expectancy, advanced versus primitive societies, family planning, birth rate,doi:10.1119/1.1564505 fatcat:axcgpok4krcabjjbpf3c4brkku
