• Think about it!- questions to investigate
  • Games and simulations - straightforward yet effective ways to demonstrate how a disease spreads through a populatio, why it eventually terminates, and the effect of immunisation
    • Standing Disease - a straight-forward whole class game which models the rate of spread of a disease in a simple way
    • 26 Card Epidemic - a game for individuals or small groups which provides a more complex model of the rate of spread of a disease, including its termination
    • Network Disease - a whole class game which models the effects of social groupings on the spread of a disease
    • Counter Plague - a game for individuals or small groups which allows the rate of infection to be varied
    • e-Counter Plague - four online simulations which model the spread of a disease within a school class or between two classes, and which also (in Plus versions) enable investigation of the effects of recovery from the disease and the effects of immunisation
    • NRICH Epidemic Modelling Simulation - a simulation on the Nrich website in which you can investigate the spread on varying sizes of populations and varying scenarios
  • The mathematical model used by researchers
