  8. 1-084-T-GoingViral

    31 Aug 2019 | Modeling Scenarios

    Students employ randomization in order to create a simulation of the spread of a viral disease in a population (the classroom).  Students then use qualitative analysis of the expected behavior of the virus to devise a logistic differential equation.  Finally, students solve the...
