Description

In this activity students will use linear regression to analyze real data on vector-borne diseases such as Malaria, Zika, and LaCrosse Virus. Students will explore how environmental factors such as climate change or population density influence the transmission of these diseases. The activities are designed for face-to-face instruction and may be adapted for an online classroom.
