Description

Students use transparencies and dry erase markers to simulate the spread of a zombie virus among a fixed population. Students are then challenged to create their own "disease" and develop an ODE model for the resulting data. From this exercise students gain greater understanding of population and SIR models, disease dynamics, parameter estimation and compartment modeling.
