Mathematical Modelling and Epidemiology educational outreach resources.

I've created some resources which I used for the first time yesterday with a class of school kids (aged 16/17) although this could be used for other ages (both younger and older!). Thought I'd share these freely if anyone would like to use.

Introduces concepts of modelling of outbreaks (Susceptible-Infected-Recovered models), including a role-play game, with tutor notes and accompanying spreadsheet.

Available as Google docs or PDF/Excel spreadsheet (via dropbox).

Would appreciate any feedback, especially if you use them in a school :)
