Lesson Description:

Be familiar with and recognize the algebraic form for a logistic model, including the corresponding parameters and if those parameters have any meaning in the context of the functional relationship (e.g. does a parameter control the initial value, rate of change (shape), decreasing or increasing (flip), max/min, limiting values, etc.).

    This lesson does a few last practice problems for finding the values of parameters of a logistic model given different information. The Solver function on a TI graphing calculator is used again to solve for a parameter in the logistic function.
