The teaching of phenomena in the sciences now passes through a paradigm shift. Seeking an increase in interest in scientific careers, it is desired to deepen the understanding of those through mathematics, so that it is not restricted to exposition of concepts and presentation of formulas to the students. To this end, appropriate instruments must be used, the choice of which should occur based on the evidence gathered from the research already carried out. In this tuning fork, mathematical modeling and the use of technology stand out. From the crossing of these, numerical methods arise in the resolution of mathematical models of phenomena, especially the dynamic ones, whose leadership in applications and adaptation to the scientific method justify our gaze. Therefore, we present here an activity designed to explore the scientific theme pharmacology in high school and higher education, especially in careers in the biological sciences.
