What Does Math Have to Do with Getting Sick?

Students build a SIR (Susceptible-Infected-Recovered) model for an epidemic moving through a population. They develop rate equations for the rate of change in the number of susceptible people with respect to time, the rate of change in the number of infected people with respect to time, and the rate of change in the number of recovered people with respect to time.
