Modeling the Spread of a Disease
This resource, created by Craig Faulhaber of Red Rocks Community College, will invite students to model the spread of a disease in a closed environment, specifically the Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station. The data will be analyzed with both discrete and continuous models. The activity requires one hour of in-class work and six to eight hours outside of class. This seven page pdf document contains directions for the teacher, detailed descriptions of discrete and continuous models, and space for students to collect data.
