“Knowledge Unlocked” - Decoding the Math Behind the COVID-19 Projection Curves

Online Via Zoom

With the dissemination of countless graphical data about COVID-19, how can you decode the math behind the virus’s projection curves? 

In this interactive webinar, Dr. Leila Issa, associate professor of mathematics, at the Department of Computer Science and Mathematics – School of Arts and Sciences, will help you better understand and critique what is being presented to you by the media. She will introduce simple mathematical models of infectious diseases, and will explain how these models work, how they impact our behavior, and what their limitations are.

This webinar is part of our free “Knowledge Unlocked” series.
