Global pandemic

With the event of COVID-19, we hear the word "pandemic" all the time. But do you and your students know the math behind how pandemics spread so quickly?

The SABES Math Center, in partnership with the SABES ELA Center, has developed two sets of ready-to-use, downloadable lesson plans and student packets, one for ABE-level students and the other for ASE-level students. The lessons can be delivered virtually or used as send-home packets. Download the materials here or by clicking "Download pandemic materials" below.

If you'd like PD support with using the lessons, sign up for How Pandemics Spread: Teaching the Math at Different Levels. Our fantastic facilitators/developers Melissa Braaten and Sarah Lonberg-Lew will take you through a sampling of some of the math activities from the materials. The next PD session is scheduled for January 15, 2020. Sign up here.
