Learning by writing #

I've been learning about the mathematical modeling of predator-prey relationships. The idea is that as the population of a prey animal (like mice) increases, the population of a predator animal (like foxes) will increase because they have lots of food. But then the mice will be eaten so their population will decrease, and then the population of foxes will decrease, and the cycle will start over again.

This blog post isn't about predator-prey though. It's a peek at how I learn things with note taking (see my previous blog post) and small projects. You might have seen some of my many lightweight explanation pages (examples: noise, hexagons on a sphere, organic cave maps) but they often don't start out that way.
