We read an article on Easter Island and discovered that it is an example of many of the themes we have discussed so far in the course...deforestation, sustainability, 'Lorax' themes and populations.  Check out the lesson for a copy of the article along with a link to the video we watched on Easter Island.HOMEWORK:  Lab report due Friday

We took the first 20 minutes to continue working on the lab from yesterday [must be passed in FIRST of class on Friday].  We did some math using an exponential growth formula and discussed some key terms (check out the notes for definitions).  Be sure to know the logistic vs exponential diagram!
