Ecolog:IEA: Integrated Educational Animations

Integrated Educational Animations introduce and explain difficult "theshold" concepts that students often find challenging, and use animations to illustrate the use of  foundational and mathematical theories in current research.  

In this video, Exponential GrowthEcolog:IEA illustrates theoretical concepts in ecology using animation to teach other students and interested members of the public. The animation illustrates visually the mathematical foundation of  population growth using the story of African elephant conservation in South Africa.
