#### Description

Logistic differential equation has a way to measure the proportionality of various resources with respect to time. This equation has been used in many research areas, such as, biology, medicine, psychology, economics, etc. A mathematical description, analysis and solution of the logistic type differential equation is studied. Besides the mathematical part, the poster will contain biological examples, graphs of the direction fields for different parameter settings and logistic plots for specific species population. The logistic growth function will also be applied to learning curves in area of psychology, as a rate at which performance improves.
