October 2: Reading.

The Mathematics of Ebola Trigger Stark Warnings: Act Now or Regret It” Wired Magazine. Sept. 14.

Discussion Questions:

1) How is this article an example of the intersection of the disciplines of political science, history, mathematics, virology(study of viruses), and epidemiology (study of diseases)?

2) Were you able to interpret the Figure 1 charts of the article, and the author’s discussion of the Figures?

Note: Most, if not all of you, should be able to interpret the charts and the author’s discussion of the charts at the level of a general reader, but if you have any questions, let me know via e-mail or in class on either Tuesday or Thursday.
