This is the actual module.

ABSTRACT:  This Module uses original data, diagrams, and texts  from three original sources to develop the logistic  model of growth in natural systems with limited re­sources. The logistic differential equation and the fa­miliar S-shaped logistic curve have applications in solv­ing problems in ecology, biology, chemistry, and eco­nomics. The Module illustrates with concrete examples  how mathematics develops, and it provides insights  into the assumptions that drive the modeling process.
