  1. 6-011-S - HumansVsZombies

    25 Oct 2018 | | Contributor(s):: Hope McIlwain

    In this activity, students will analyze the SIR differential equations model in the context of a zombie invasion of a human population. First the students will analyze a two equation system representing only two populations, humans and zombies. Then a new population, the recovered zombies, will...

    Invented in 2005, Humans vs. Zombies, or HvZ, is a game of tag, predominantly played at US college campuses. In this activity, students use systems of non-linear differential equations to model the HvZ game. Many alternate rule sets provide options to formulate different models. Students solve...
