This curriculum teaches high school students key science and math principles as they pertain to natural resources management.

Students will learn the three important components of white-tailed deer management: the deer population, the habitat, and the people who interact with and use this species. The comprehensive background reading section describes each component, then details how each is assessed and evaluated by wildlife biologists. Students learn to collect, analyze and interpret data to help them evaluate the three components. Students will also learn to make management recommendations based on this data. Everything needed to teach this material is included in the notebook and on the accompanying CD. Each math and science lesson plan includes its TEKS correlation and activities that allow students to put their classroom experiences into action.
