Examples and Questions with brief solutions

Students in grades 5 - 9 model the spread of an infectious disease under the entertaining theme of a zombie outbreak. One student unknowingly is patient zero and students simulate the spread of an airborne illness. This highly engaging activity covers health topics, nature of science, and math skills as students graph data in a line plot. Higher level students can be challenged to find the function of the exponential growth of the outbreak.
