Coverage or scope
The scope of the learning object is to introduce students to the mathematical description of an epidemic through the SIR modeling. Students can observe and intepret the shape of the epidemic curve. They can actively modify the parameters of transmissibility, infectiousness and sociability and see the impact on the shape of the epidemic curve, the duration of the epidemic and the maximum of cases, they will have. By selecting the Healtcare Capacity to be shown, the need for minimising the cases and 'flattening the curve' during an epidemic can be explained. The learning object is appropriate for inquiry-based learning activities and activities highlighting the function of scientific models.
