Finished teaching logistic and exponential growth curves? Looking for a fun experiment that models population growth? This lab simulates the spread of an infectious disease through a population (your classroom). Students will have fun seeing if they get "infected," and analyzing how the disease affects population growth. Both PDF and Word (editable) versions are included.
