Students in the integrated math class had the privilege to listen to and ask questions to Dr. Hoffling about the Zika virus. Dr. Hoffling is a professor of infectology at UNICAMP, one of the best universities in Brazil. Below is the video of the discussion.
The students in the 10th grade Integrated Math class are using their knowledge about exponential and logarithmic functions to work on a collaborative research project with students from the International School of Prague. They are using Google Trends and Desmos to model the H1N1 virus in order to extrapolate information to predict the spread of the Zika virus. Below are the some pictures of their work this week.
