Module 3 Lesson 22 Project:One person in your group needs to make a copy of this document.  Then share it with your partner. Rename it with the original name plus your class period.  This will be turned in on Google Classroom.List names of group members here:  (Each person should choose to either type their answers in red or blue.)(Bryce)(Eli)Modeling an Invasive Species PopulationThe lionfish is a fish that is native to the western Pacific Ocean. The lionfish began appearing in the western Atlantic Ocean in 1985. This is probably because people bought them as pets and then dumped them in waterways leading to the ocean. Because it has no natural predators in this area, the number of lionfish grew very quickly and now has large populations throughout the Caribbean as well as along the eastern coastline of the United States and the Gulf of Mexico. Lionfish have recently been spotted as far north as New York and Rhode Island. Here is the link to the NAS (Nonindigenous Aquatic Species) website.  Watch the start and spread of the lionfish from 1985 in Miami until now.  hereLionfish Questions – *Answer each question in your respective test color and put the initials of the person who answered it in the blank before the number.*Make sure that you have answered all the questions and have shown your work on question #6.*Use Google Sheets to create a Graph and insert it into the document.  Must include: the title of the graph and labeled axes.____1. Complete the table below by recording the total number of sightings for each year.  The table below shows the number of new sightings by year reported to NAS (Nonindigenous Aquatic Species), which is a branch of the U.S. Geological Survey Department.YearNumber of New SightingsTotal Number of Sightings198511199212199535199616200061220012537200250872003451322004571892005432322006512832007186469200817364220096671,30920101,3422,651____2. Examine the total number of sightings data. Which model appears to be a better fit for the data, linear, or exponential? Explain your reasoning.Exponential growth, because the numbers do not keep a constant but instead they multiply in numbers each year.____3. Make a scatterplot of the year versus the total number of sightings on your own piece of graph paper.  Please be neat with your graph.  Years will be on the x-axis and number of sightings on the y-axis (Label the year in increments of 1).  Insert that graph from Google Sheets here.J.B___4. Based on the scatterplot, either revise your answer from Problem 2 or explain how the scatterplot supports your answer from Problem 2.The dots are going up with the years so it would be best for it to be exponential.____5. On the graph of the scatterplot, draw a smooth curve that best fits the data.  Insert that graph here.J.B____6. From your table, calculate the average rate of change in total number of sightings for each of the following time intervals.  Remember to use the slope formula (m=y2-y1x2-x1).a. 1995–2000 b. 2000–2005 c. 2005–2010A  12-52000-1995= 75=1.40B  232-122005-2000=2205=44C 2,651-2322010-2005= 24195= 483____7. How do the average rates of change help to support your argument of whether a linear or exponential model is better suited for the data? The rate of change gets to big for a linear graph so that’s why exponential is best.____8. Use your model (your graph) to predict the total number of lionfish sightings by the end of 2013.  This should not be the exact answer, just what your graph showed.4,891____9. The actual number of sightings as of July 2013 was 3,776. Does it seem that your model produced an accurate prediction? Explain.Kudzu Project – *You will turn in your “rough draft”/facts sheet to me.*These are the things I am looking for in the Google Doc: 1)Group Members Names at top of page2) Title: Kudzu3)1-2 pages total including pictures (up to 4), information about Kudzu, the facts on how fast it grows, and your group members’ decision as to whether you believe it has a linear or exponential model with a reasoning.  4)Sources (websites you visited to find facts).  You should have more than just one resource.5).  Draw a graph of the growth of kudzu in the US over the century.6).  Do not copy information from the internet or any other source.  That will result in a zero for this part of the project.  Make sure to include whether you believe that the model resulted in a linear or exponential function.Another Invasive Species Problem: KudzuKudzu, a perennial vine native to Southeast Asia, now covers a large area of the southern United States.
