Understanding how an infection such as swine flu spreads through a population, or how different populations interact with each other, is essential to maintain healthy and diverse populations. By describing these situations with maths, we can make predictions about what will happen when a particular treatment/containment strategy will be most effective. We will show students how to develop these mathematical models and look at ways to ensure the human race survives if (and when) the zombies attack!
