- Students will model the spread of a rumor using a recursive sequence.
- Students will understand that variations in the recursive sequence modeling the spread of a rumor or a disease can lead to predictable or chaotic behavior.
About the Lesson
This lesson involves modeling the spread of a rumor and similar problems.
As a result, students will:
- Find and analyze a recursive sequence modeling the spread of a rumor.
- Explore variations in this sequence that lead to predictable and chaotic behavior.
