We describe a classroom activity in which students use M&M candies to simulate death and immigration. Students build a mathematical model, collect data, estimate parameters, and compare their model prediction with their actual data.
There is a video of one run of the main simulation in this Modeling Scenario on YouTube.
SPANISH LANGUAGE VERSION We have placed in Supporting Docs a Spanish version of this Student Modeling Scenario. Name will be x-y-S-Title-StudentVersion-Spanish
