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?
