Summary:
This is a short exploration activity to introduce SIR and SEIR models without explicitly introducing differential equations. It utilizes the R package EpiDynamics and students can run the simulations themselves to observe flattening the curve.

Description

This is a short exploration activity to introduce SIR and SEIR models without explicitly introducing differential equations.  It utilizes the R package EpiDynamics and students can run the simulations themselves to observe flattening the curve.

Estimated time will vary. Please contact QUBESHub staff through the help ticket feature if you expect a large number of students to access the cloud-based tools at once.

Figure caption and headers are utilized to make this activity screen reader accessible, though RStudio itself is not yet screen reader accessible.
