The teaching of r and K population strategies involves integrating biological, graphical, and mathematical concepts so that a complex 'concept image' is formed. This investigation identified the main problems encountered by students in studying this topic as being interpreting graphs, making links with biological processes, and drawing general conclusions from data. The use of a formal lecture and three approaches to using a spreadsheet are evaluated, and suggestions are made for effective teaching of these concepts.
