Using a website simulation tool, students build on their understanding of random processes on networks to interact with the graph of a social network of individuals and simulate the spread of a disease. They decide which two individuals on the network are the best to vaccinate in an attempt to minimize the number of people infected and "curb the epidemic." Since the results are random, they run multiple simulations and compute the average number of infected individuals before analyzing the results and assessing the effectiveness of their vaccination strategies.

This video lesson shows students that math can play a role in understanding how an infectious disease spreads and how it can be controlled. During this lesson, students will see and use both deterministic and probabilistic models and will learn by doing through role-playing exercises. The primary exercises between video segments of this lesson are class-intensive simulation games in which members of the class 'infect' each other under alternative math modeling assumptions about disease progression. Also there is an occasional class discussion and local discussion with nearby classmates.

In this activity, students will learn what medicines treat which conditions and which relieve symptoms of illness in the target language. Students will learn to describe medicines and symptoms to be relieved. Students will discuss home remedies in Mexico. Students will also compare and contrast medicines and home remedies in the United States in comparison to Mexico.

In our increasingly globalized world, a single infected person can board a plane and spread a virus across continents. Mark Honigsbaum describes the history of pandemics and how that knowledge can help halt future outbreaks. A quiz, thought provoking question, and links for further study are provided to create a lesson around the 8-minute video. Educators may use the platform to easily "Flip" or create their own lesson for use with their students of any age or level.

This resource is a video abstract of a research paper created by Research Square on behalf of its authors. It provides a synopsis that's easy to understand, and can be used to introduce the topics it covers to students, researchers, and the general public. The video's transcript is also provided in full, with a portion provided below for preview:

"A new vaccine against influenza virus may offer previously unattainable levels of protection to newborn pigs. Just as humans muddle through the flu season each year, pigs across the globe are affected by their own regular outbreaks, causing notable economic losses in the pork industry. But an international research team has now shown that the newly developed vaccine can keep the virus from replicating in newborn pigs, potentially reducing the spread of disease. Historically, breeding females have been the main target for influenza control in pig populations. Females given a vaccine containing an inactive form of influenza type A virus – a key agent of respiratory disease in pigs – can confer passive immunity to their offspring. But this doesn’t stop piglets from becoming infected with or passing on the virus – it just keeps them from showing clinical signs for a short period, since any maternally derived protection will wear off over time..."

The rest of the transcript, along with a link to the research itself, is available on the resource itself.

Building on their understanding of graphs, students are introduced to random processes on networks. They walk through an illustrative example to see how a random process can be used to represent the spread of an infectious disease, such as the flu, on a social network of students. This demonstrates how scientists and engineers use mathematics to model and simulate random processes on complex networks. Topics covered include random processes and modeling disease spread, specifically the SIR (susceptible, infectious, resistant) model.

This I.L.P. It aims to teach the concept of some viral diseases, the symptoms, the place of origin and the risks of each of them so that, adolescents are more informed about the subject, can speak properly and know how to differentiate if they have any symptoms. Also, it will help them to have more knowledge about the different viruses that have affected the world.
