The Mathematics of Virus Modelling

The Mathematics of Virus Modelling

A topical PowerPoint lesson resource focussed on some of the mathematics involved in the current Covid19 pandemic. The resource covers the topics of indices (powers), sequences of numbers and data representation (graphs). The topics covered go up to Higher/Advanced Higher maths level, but this resource would be suitable for able S3/S4 pupils because the more advanced concepts are presented in an accessible way. The resource is aimed at teachers but could also be used by learners for home learning.

Vectors Puzzle Worksheets
