    Something that I found confusing was during lab two, there was a section where we had to calculate index of dispersion (Id). It was part 3, question 3. In the report procedure it said calculations may not be exact, but if Id = 1, then distribution pattern is random. If Id = n, then distribution pattern is clumped. If Id = 0, then distribution pattern is uniform. My excel calculation came out to be 1.21. Maybe I am used to working down to the exact decimal but at what point would Id not be able to identify with a distribution pattern?

    I think the hardest concept that we have learned so far for me had to be Lab 3 Paradox of Enrichment. I didn’t think at first this lab would be that difficult so I just went with the flow and started the lab. I should of took more time to read everything before I let the simulation go. After reading my feedback from the teacher I realized I should of took more time and fully explained everything instead of just a couple sentences in each question. I went back to simulation and did it all oven again and took my time and everything made much more sense.
