Movember Modelling Task

Movember is a charity set up in 2003 (in Australia) to help raise awareness of men’s health, particular of the risks of prostate cancer and testicular cancer. Every Mo Bro (Movember Brother) grows a mustache to raise awareness and commits themselves to raising as much money as possible for charity. It’s a great idea and all for an excellent cause.

With this in mind I decided to quickly whip together a modelling task (IB style) that looks into finding a model for the increase in Mo Bro members since 2003 and the increase in funds raised. If you do it soon enough then you can have a competition in class to see whos model gives the closest estimate for the number of members and funds raised this year. (Click the picture to get the pdf)
