  • Creating Simple Math Models to Gain Insights on the Spread of a Virus (Grades 5–12)

    One of the most exciting areas of modeling concerns “predicting” change. The main question that is posed in this setting is how to calculate change over time? This type of problem is found in science, engineering, humanities and finance. Predictions are made by knowing the value of something at a certain time (how many people have a virus on Monday) and then computing the values at a later time (how many people will have the virus a month from now). A system of equations that allows such a prediction is called a Discrete Dynamical System. In this class, we will use basic concepts of arithmetic to model change. All the modeling will be done using Excel. The types of problems we will examine will be determined by the students. Some students may like to know how many sequences of 0’s and 1’s do not have two consecutive 0’s (a future computer scientist). Other students may want to model the interest on a car loan (a business major). We will have fun examining a variety of questions. This class is designed for both Middle and Upper School students.
