  • Which functions could be used to model these data sets?Caffeine remaining for a non-smoking adultHow could you find the parameters?

  • Reflect on your work

    What types of functions did you use to model the data?Which method of finding parameters did you use? Do you think it was the most effective?How well did your models fit the data?Compare your models with those found by other students.Cup of coffeeWhich model gave the best fit?
