Claudia Carter: How a Rumor Spreads—An Introduction to Logistic Curves

One of the initiatives of the National Science Foundation is to fund projects to create reformed curricula. Claudia was invited to join a team of writers for a project called ARISE, written by COMAP (Consortium of Mathematics and Its Applications). COMAP structures projects so that the mathematics content “arises” out of problem situations. Claudia’s lesson on investigating exponential and logarithmic functions was inspired by the work she did as part of this team.
