This activity presents a real-world problem about an epidemic of influenza spreading through a city. Learners refer to a graph that shows the number of individuals infected in relation to the number of weeks that have elapsed since the start of the epidemic. They complete a set of four exercises asking them to read various function values from the graph and interpret those values in the context of the problem. This task can be used either for assessment or for instruction to help facilitate a deeper understanding of how a function models change.
