How does a disease experience the world as an opportunity?
The discovery of a cure depends upon understanding the disease, its context, and its lifespan, both within the body of the affected patient and across communities and time. In this project, you will study data, probability, as well as quadratic and exponential functions to model the life-cycle of epidemics. You will conduct an interview with someone who has had experience with an epidemic, and you will chart the path of an epidemic using statistics and graphing. Learn about the spread and evolution of disease and how this information helps in the development of cures by investigating Epidemic Map.
