Introduces your class to random processes in networks with an activity that uses information about disease spread using the susceptible, infectious, resistant (SIR) model. Participants determine whether a susceptible person becomes infectious by flipping a coin.
- Instead of demonstrating the spread of the disease, have pupils begin with the same scenario and run the simulation themselves using a coin flip
- Research random processes in networks and find simulations for them
- The class should understand how to use graphs to represent complex networks
- The third in a four-part series
- The resource includes a vocabulary list and definitions
- The assessment section provides questions to ask the class to determine whether they understand the concept
- The lesson plan does not provide clear guidance on the way to teach information to the class
