BOMBAY  The total number of deaths in Bombay from a plague spread by rats during the period December 1905 to July 1906.  Increasing, Sigmoidal 
DENECKE  Paul Denecke, The University of Arizona, conducted the following experiment using a VCR equipped with a digital tapecounter. He put a tape in the unit, set the tapecounter to zero, and, as he started the tape playing, noted the time. He then kept recording the time and the number on the tapecounter. This data set was obtained in this way. It shows the number of revolutions  the number on the tapecounter  as a function of time in seconds.  Increasing, Concave Up 
MEMORY  The average percentage memory loss as a function of time.  Decreasing, Concave Up

TAPE  Conduct the following experiment using either a VCR or a tape deck equipped with a digital tapecounter. Put a tape in the unit, set the tapecounter to zero, and, as you start the tape playing, note the time. Then record the time every 5 to 10 minutes along with the number on the tapecounter. This data set was obtained in this way. It shows the number of revolutions  the number on the tapecounter  as a function of time in seconds.  Increasing, Concave Down
