To be literate in a society where the information shared online is often exploited, learners should be exposed to multiple aspects of contemporary predictive modeling. Explore a lesson in which students learned an algorithm used in practice to automate the process of making recommendations.
Inspired by epidemic curves, this class developed a spreadsheet model of an epidemic to compare outcomes with and without protective measures.
