This is the Epidemic Model Challenge from the Project GUTS MOOC.
Use the Experimental Design form to sketch out your intention
- Consider “What are the dependent and independent variables?” and “What are the variables that already exist in this model?” [#initially sick, density of population, transmission rate, population movement, recovery rate] What is the range of values for the variable you chose? How many trials will you run at each setting? How will you capture the data?
- Choose one variable to experiment with, then use the “Experimental Design handout” to describe your experiments and record data from your experiments.
- Consider how many trials do you need to run at each setting of the variable.
- Collect and record data on the Experimental Design Form
Upload your completed Experimental Design Form and a link to your model to complete this challenge.
