pack iconWelcome to the Disease Dynamics pack!


This pack contains materials we have developed during an exciting project in which school students contributed to research into how infectious diseases spread in primary schools.  We are grateful to the Wellcome Trust for funding this project.  We are also grateful to the Royal Society for publishing an article on this project and the scientific findings.  You can also see a blog item on this project.

Comments by members of the research team on the contribution by the school students

This pack includes resources which can be used in maths and science lessons. These resources include presentations exploring how epidemic diseases spread, and how mathematics can be used to model disease spread. The resources also include practical classroom activities, games and investigations: we hope that you find them useful and we welcome any feedback you'd like to give us.

Links to further information, presentations, classroom activities and resources are on the left.
