In this assignment, students will consider models for managing populations of sea turtles and fish. For the first question, students will apply their understanding of statistical concepts (means, standard deviations, t tests, hypothesis testing) to the results of a model simulation and use their analysis to make a policy recommendation about turtle conservation. In the second question, students will calculate and compare the survival rates resulting from two strategies of fish population management. This document serves as a student handout; an answer key is provided in an accompanying document.
