We plan to develop a mathematical biology module using Dengue Fever as a case study.

The mathematical models can be a compartmental models with the susceptible, exposed,

infected, and recovered humans and susceptible, exposed, and infected mosquitos.

We will start with a simple model with a few compartments, using either deterministic

ordinary differential equations or stochastic models to show the disease transmission dynamics.

The course will serve as a starting point for students asking questions and

expand the simple model to explore the answers.

One of the questions is:

What is the likelihood of a person developing Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever?
